PREFACE. 



^pilE Constitution of The Holland Society of New York, organized in 1885, prescribes 
•I that members must trace their lineage in the mnlc line to Dutch citizens who 
were resident in the American Colonics prior to the year 1675. In investigating his 
claims to membership in the Society the writer became interested in the subject of 
genealogy, and the present work is the result thereof. 

At the start he had but little idea of the amount of labor involved, nor of the 
numbers represented in the family. He had not then heard of the Bantas among the 
Kentucky pioneers, whose numerous descendants have so greatly multiplied the name 
in that State and the West. Nor did he at first appreciate the benefit of eliciting 
information in regard to items of personal history other than a mere list of names and 
dates. In consequence, the circulars and blank forms first sent out did not provide for 
replies on subjects which subsequently appeared to him as quite interesting in a family 
history, and this work is, therefore, not as complete as he deeins desirable. It has 
been a gratification to find how ready the response has been for information requested, 
for though some have made no answer to repeated letters, yet the exceptions have been 
comparatively rare where persons have ignored all requests. 

The work was much facilitated by the f;ict that the earlier generations of the family 
in this country were generally all connected with the Refl^.td Dutch Church, and that 
the marriage and baptismal registers of that Church in New York, Hackensack and 
vicinity have been preserved, which furnislied quite full records of the first one hundred 
years. Again, it was very fortunate that so many old I5ibles were found containing 
family records extending for more than a century. It is quite remarkable that among 
all the hundreds who have sent statements to the compiler of this work there has been 
but one family bearing the name of I?anta which it has not been possible to connect 
with the original progenitor, Epkc Jacobse. This exception is descended from Jacob 
Hanta and his wife, Mary Van Allen, who were resident in New Jersey during the latter 
part of the last century. There nre several Jacob Bantas who appear in these records, 
one of whom may be the one in Question, but it has not been possible positively to 
ii!.;,Uf; hii.i. Tills fauiiiy liad an mu inolc euniauiing a record which would have 
cleared up the difficulty, but it passed out of their possession some years ago, during the 
craze in regard to the "Holland fortune." In common with many others of the old 
f.imilics of the country, many of the Hantas were victims of unscrupulous claim agents, 
who led them to belicvx- there was in HulIanH-- — = — ' jrtune to be distributed

iv. Preface. 

" Let me premise, however, by giving you the tradition of our family as concisely 
as possible. That we are descendants of a King of Holland — that a large amount of 
money was in Holland belonging to the family — that a man had been sent over to 
Holland during my grandfather's time to obtain it, but he was never heard from — that 
my grandfather's house, together uiih valuable papers, was burned during the Revolu- 
tionary War by Indians and Tories." 

The other account is equally absurd, setting forth that a rich Hollander by the 
name of Banta, being exasperated by his two daughters marrying without his consent, 
had so tied up his property that it could not be divided for several generations — that it 
consisted of valuable buildings in Amsterdam (the writer of the letter had seen photo- 
graphs of the buildings !) and other property now amounting in all to over fifty million 
dollars, which had been in the possession of the government of the Netheriands and 
was now to be distributed among the lianta heirs. 

These ridiculous stories would be simply amusing were it not that they were 
accepted as facts by scores of persons throughout the country, who, on receiving the 
circulars requesting information in regard to their lineage, assumed that the object was 
in connection with the "Holland fortune," and it has been with no little pain that the 
writer has had to reply— to so many who were in lowly circumstances, and who had been 
long cherishing hopes for improvement from the riches beyond the seas — that there was 
not the slightest foundation for any expectations from such source. 

So numerous have been the inquiries at the government offices at Washington in 
reference to unclaimed estates in Europe, that the Secretary of State issued a scries of 
circulars in reply to them, and the one in reference to estates in Holland is here inserted 
as a matter of general interest : 

ESTATES IN HOLLAND.

Your letter of the has been received. Your inquiry belongs 

to a numerous class, and the frequency with which applications for information with 
regard to supposed estates in Holland have been made to this Department for several 
vears past, has led to patient and careful investigation thereof, in several instances 

where the mlormalion luiui:.;iu.: I-, 'l- j i '' ^■•■-r,..A to ho <:r.nHfir enon-rh to 

warrant such a proceeding. In no c.ise has the existence of the supposed estate or 
alleged unclaimed fortune been verified. .Moreover, the legislation of the Netherlands 
is such as to effectually and without ripp.il dispose of all claims, even if inherently just, 
and founded on an actual and known heritage, which were not presented and proven 
prior to 1852. .... , ,,.... 

For your further information on this point, 1 append a copy of a dispatch on the 
subject from the United States Minister at The Hague.

Preface. v. 

\_Mr. Birney to Mr. Evarts. ] 
[No. 63.] Legation of the United States, 

The Hague, March i, 1S7S. (Received March 18.) 

Sir: I am in receipt, since my residence at this post, of a great many letters from 
citizens of the United States, asking information in regard to supposed claims to estates 
in the Netherlands, and requesting suggestions as to the best method of establishing 
them. They come from all parts of the country, from Maine to California. The de- 
mands range from $12,000,000 down to a more manageable sum, and extend over a 
period embraced within the past 200 years. 

Although neither the presentation nor prosecution of private claims is among the 
duties devolving upon me, I have been disposed to contribute such information to in- 
quirers as I could conveniently find. But the letters, whether from lawyers or laymen, 
are almost without exception so entirely vague and indefinite that they rarely furnish 
any clew to an investigation. As there is little prospect of a cessation of such inquiries, 
and no doubt much time and money has been and will be uselessly expended, through 
the imposition of a certain class of a speculative turn of mind, who work upon the 
credulity of those who think they may have interests that can be realized, I have 
thought it might be well to address you a note containing a brief general statement 
upon the subject to which such letters relate, and, if it meets your approval, to put it in 
print, that I may attach it to more special answers sent to future inquirers. 

It is altogether probable that most persons in the United States who write for in- 
formation do so under the impression that it can be readily had, after the fashion in 
their own country, by stepping into a surrogate or probate office and examining the 
records. But in Holland there are no such offices open to the public for the record of 
wills. Wills in this country are deposited by the testator in the custody of the notary 
whom he requested to officiate as his draughtsman. He may select any notary he 
pleases. Notaries in Holland are usually appointed from the legal profession, and are 
functionaries of reliable character. Trusts of great value are safely committed to them. 
They are not admitted to the office until they have stood the test of a rigid examination 
as to their proficiency in the duties incumbent upon them. The will is filed in duplicate 
in the office of the notary, and its custody descends to his successor. The notary enters 
upon his register the title and subject matter of each i)aper filed with him, with a cor- 
responding number. This is examined each month by the procureur-general or district 
attorney, and, if found correct, is indorsed by him. 

Ordinarily, there is no difficulty whatever, on the part of those concerned, in find- 
ing the notary who may have possession of a particular will. The friends and members 
of the family will remember very well who officiated in that capacity. But when a 
quarter or a half century has elapsed since the death of the testator, and inquiries come 
from abroad, accompanied by no statement as to the locality of the property and former 
residence of the deceased, or the time of his death, it is no easy matter, often, to find 
the officer or the successor sought for. Extensive advertisement is sometimes the only 
means of discovering heirs. Wills are so carefully drawn that contests about them sel- 
dom occur, and it is very rare that heirs prefer to have the testator proved not of sound 
mind and memory. 

In numerous instances inquiries have been made by attorneys as to the judicial pro- 
ceedings customary here upon the assertion of such claims. I will, as succinctly as 
possible, reler to their history and present course. 

Many years ago the courts of the country exercised the right to appoint guardians 
for the persons and property of minors. In the fourteenth century there were 
established what were styled orphans' courts. To them was delegated the care of the 
est.ates of deceased persons. At that period the courts had almost supreme power in 
their respective districts. The first mention of such delegation of power by any of them 
is tliat found in the statute published by the Countess of Margaritta on the loth of May, 
1346. At that time cities acted as distinct sovereignties, according to the authority 
hi'stowed. In 1351 I'hilip of I'.urgundy granted to tlur city of The Hague such an 
orphans' court. On the 13th of May, 1355, Count William of Bavaria bestowed upon 
the city iif Di'lft the right lo establish :i chaml)cr for orjilLins' court. In 14S5 Maximilian, 
by a st.itute proclaimed on the 16th of November, extended more generally this right. 



vi. Preface. 

Under this system such claims were settled until i8og, when all orphans' courts 
were abolished by the introduction of the I-'renth civil law thii)u;;hout the kingdom of 
the Netherlands. The methods of procedure under this code were concluded by the 
principles laid down in Grotius and Van I.euwen, who were to Dutch law what Black- 
stone has been to English and American law. On the 5th of March, 1852, the Staats 
General, or Parliament of the Netherlamls, passed an act providing for the organization 
of a state commission, whose duty it became to settle claims against the estates of 
deceased persons as well as against the government. All the funds heretofore under 
the care of the orphans' courts, or other oft'u iais, .md undisposed of, passed into the 
custody of this commission. This act also provided that for any sum not paid over, 
and which had been within the jurisdiction of the orphans' court, the municipality in 
which it was appointed should still be liable to any one establishing his right to it. 

The rules of this commission require that all persons making demand for funds 
under its control shall make a full statement of the case in writing, with proofs of descent 
and identity. A receipt is given for the papers, and u itliin two months the commission 
announces its decision ; if adverse, the claimant has the light of appeal to the courts. 

This act also provides that, as soon as practic.d>le after its taking effect, an adver- 
tisement should be inserted in the official journal know n as the Slaats Coiirant, notifying 
all claimants to any portion of the funds in their hands to make demand and proof; 
also, that after an interval of six months from the first there should be a second adver- 
tisement, and tjiat after the lapse of five years from such second notice all estates to 
which claims had not been established should escheat to the State. 

This law would dispose of such estates as were in the hands of the commission prior 
to 1852. It is scarcely reasonable to suppose that any government would hold itself 
responsible without limitation as to time for all waifs that may have fallen under its 
protection. 

There are persons, however, who expend large sums upon travel and attorneys 
under the belief that this government has held in its treasury vast amounts, and is only 
waiting to welcome some one who will come and claim it. Not many months since, a 
respectable, zealous, and intelligent old lady from lirooklyn, N. Y., called upon me to 
inquire how she should approach the government to induce it to pay over without delay 
what was honestly due her as one of the heirs of a Dutch general who expired suddenly 
on horseback while engaged in a grand parade that occurred 200 years ago. She was 
accompanied by a French advocate whom she had engaged in France to prepare her 
brief in the case. He already had it printed in the shape of a large pamphlet. The 
lady claimed that the government had taken charge of the property, and had since been 
in the receipt of the usufruct. She admitted that the claim had become of such magni- 
tude that if ordinary interest should be added to the principal no government in Europe 
had the ability to pay it. She was, however, uMling to accept the principal and allow 
further time for the interest. She was fully determined, as she said, if Holland did not 
meet her expectations in doing what was right and just, to have the government dis- 
honored in the eyes of all Eurojje. She called upon several of the embassies here to 
induce them to form a sort of alliance of the powers to bring a pressure to bear. This 
she did because there were heirs in Germany, France, England, and the United States. 
She was determined that her petition sliould be laid before the highest authority. For 
this purpose she waited at .the door of the palace, and, when His Majesty the King 
appeared, she presented it in person, lie referred it to his minister of finance, who 
very soon addressed a note to me .iiij/iL.u.i iiiTu. ..i;,i„ I...1 l!...l lI,^ ,,!.^1^ ;...iH-: !' "1 
several times been thoroughly examined in the courts and decided adversely to claim- 
ants. 1 advised her that it would be more judicious to save the money she was ex- 
pending upon steamers, hotels, and advocates. 

A recent mail brought me a letter fiom a citizen of Marysville. He sets out by 
saying that he had written to I'resideiit ll.iyes, asking him to interpose in regard to an 
estate left him in Holland, and th.il in reply my address had been sent to him. He 
goes on to state th.it several newspapers had notified him that his ancestor, who died 
100 years ago, had left a large amoiinl and directed that it should be put at interest for 
100 years .ind then divided am<Mig Ins luirs; 111. it this time having arrived it w.is read

Preface. vii. 

This was followed by letters from persons of the same name, written, one from Lebanon, 
N. J., one from Ulster County, New York, another from Washington, all solicitous about 
the same interest. Hut in no one of them was there mention of the time or place of 
death of the testator, nor the location or description of the property, nor was a copy of 
the newspaper notice inclosed; in fact no clue by which investigation coidd be 
commenced. 

Of one thing such inquirers may be certain, and that is, the Holland Government 
never has ordered its notices to be inserted in foreign newspapers. Not long since a 
j,'cntleman of fair intelligence called upon me and represented that he had just arrived 
from a voyage across the Atlantic, having been employed by parties who supposed they 
were heirs to an estate somewhere in Holland. I discovered that he had undertaken 
this business and made an expensive trip without the slightest knowledge as to the 
locality, or province, or part of the kingdom in which the testator had lived and died. 
1 referred him to a competent barrister, by whom he was told that he would have to 
advertise in several of the leading newspapers for the notary who had the will. That 
discouraged him and he took his departure, no wiser than when he set off from New 
York. Advances may have been made sufficient for the trip, but not for advertising. 
I mention such instances to show that much is expended in such inquiries without avail. 

I may add, however, that if any one in the United States has a ioiia ft/c cWim 
against the Government of Holland, or any of its officials, which can be clearly and 
satisfactorily shown, he may rely upon it that there is no government that will more 
promptly and fully meet the demand. 

Hoping that these hints may not be without some service to the many persons in 
the United States wh» look wistfully to the fortunes coming to them from Holland, 
I have, &c., JAMES BIRNEY. 

Since the chapter on "The Origin of the Name" was printed, it was learned that 
there was a hamlet in Hungary by the name of Banta. This was the more singular 
because, in the History of Bergen County, by Clayton, page i88, it is stated that the 
Hanta family was of Hungarian origin, the foundation for which statement could not be 
ascertained. A letter of inquiry to an intelligent gentleman in Budapest elicited the 
following reply : 

Budapest, December lo, 1892. 
Theodore M. Banta, Esq., New York. 

Dear Sir: Your esteemed favor of the 22d ulto. came duly to hand, and in reply 
I beg to remark that very often when I have read your name I thought that your family 
might be of Hungarian origin, as the name sounds Hungarian. 

On receipt of your esteemed favor, I addressed myself to Prof. D. Simonyi, who is 
the first linguist in the country, and Professor of the Hungarian Language at the Uni- 
versity of Budapest. 

I send you herewith enclosed his reply in Hungarian, and give you the translation 
of the letter, as follows : > 

Dear Doctor: There is no town named Banta in Hungary, but we have a 
village named Banota (with short "a" and " o ") in the Department of Zala, near 
AUr, I f-nrlvn Tnd if is pn<;sih1e that this name«as abbreviated as a family name from 
Banota to Banta, as, for instance, Halvany from Halovany, etc. 

But we fimi "Bonta" also as a Hungarian family name in the sixteenth century 
(written "Bontha") as it was published in the " Hungari:m Nyelvor," in 1880, on page 
364. It is very possible that from "Bonta" it changed to " Banta," as has happened 
in our language, from Mogyoro to Magyaro (hazelnut). In some parts of the country 
they use the word "bonta," which is an adjective, signifying "many-colored." 

lam, dear sir, (Signed) Simonyi Zs. 

I addressed myself also to the brother of Prof. Simonyi Zs., Dr. Eugene Simonyi, 
who is the first geogr;iphical authority in the country, in order to find out whether there 
is such a village near Veszprcm, and I send you herewith his answer, the translation of 
which is as follows: 



viii. Preface. ' »»- 

Dear Doctor: I don't know anybody by the name of Banta. There is a 
"puszta Banta" (puszta is cstatt) in the County of Vcszpreni, between Var-Palota and 
Osku, and a villa^jc, "Banota," in the County of Zala, in the neighborhood of A. 
Lendva. The "a" in Banta, with western pronunciation, is certainly not the Hunga- 
rian "a," but a short "a." Yours truly, (Signed) SlMONVl. 

I have never heard of the name of " Banta " in our country, but it is true that your 
name sounds quite Hungarian, and nobody here would hesitate to take it for a pure 
Hungarian one. 

I shall also have searched the registers of marriages and baptisms, which extend 200 
or 300 years back, and shall inform you of tlie result at a later date. These registers are 
in the hands of the municipality in every town, and are kept by the respective clergy- 
men. 1 need not mention that in regard to any information you may desire I am en- 
tirely at your disposal. 

When I was in New York, in April of this year, I remember to have had the 
pleasure of seeing you on the day you occupied anew your position. 

I am, dear sir, yours truly, 

D. Aranyi. 

To add to the puzzle as to the origin and inciiiing uf the name, it may be mentioned 
that Banta or Bantu is applied to a group of African races and languages, extending 
over a large part of Eastern, Central and Southern Africa — the language differing 
greatly from the true negro language. — I.i/ipiiho/i's Universal Gazetteer, edition of 
1S93, page 584. 

The Encyclopiedia Britannica, (jlh edition, in interesting articles on the KafTres 
and Zulus, thus refers to the language: "The word abaiitu, or abanta, denotes 
'people.' Philologists speak highly of tlie be.uity and llexibility of the Bantu languages, 
and of their grammatical structure." 

There is a Post-office by the name of IS.mta in Johnson County, Indiana, a few 
miles from Franklin, named in honor of Judge D. 1). Banta, Dean of the law schoofof 
Indiana University. 

There is also a post village by the name of Banta in San Joaquin County, Cali- 
fornia, on the Central Pacific Railroad, seventeen miles southwest of Stockton. 

The plan upon which this genealogy has been prepared will be readily understood. 
A separate chapter is devoted to all the information obtainable concerning each of the 
sons of Epke Jacob, all of whom were born in Holland, and came in early childhood 
with their parents to America. A succeeding chapter gives similar information regarding 
the descendants of these sons for each succeeding generation. The names are num- 
bered consecutively for the puri)ose of identification, and a small figure affixed to each 
name indicates the generation in which the person belongs. The head-line on each 
page shows the line of descent of those mentioned thereon. For example, on page 313 
will be found No. 275S John" Banta, and below is 4577 Isaac T."* At the top of the 
page the head-line reads, "Eighth Generation; Isaac" David"" Henry^ Hendrick'' Hen- 
drick- Epkei," indicating that Isaac T." is of the eighth generation, and that he is the 
son ot Jolin,' who was liie sou ui ia.u.^.,' ..l.u ...i^ il.,. o^,. wf Da.iJ,' .>ho u..^ th. . ". 
of Henry,* who was the son of lleiulrick,-' who was the son of Hendrick,'- who was the 
son of Epke.i 

This volume contains descendants to the eleventh generation of Epke Jacob, the 
progenitor of the Banta family in America, showing an aggregate of nearly nine thousand 
persons who might claim him as their forefather. The number herein enrolled 
represents probably not more than one-half of his poslerity, as in general the offspring 
of the daughters have not been recordeil Ijeyoiul one generation, and many in (he male

line also have been lost sight of. The numbers in the several generations which appear 
in the volume, separated to show the descendants of each of the sons of Epke Jacob,

It is an interesting study also to trace one's pedigree back through both the several 
paternal and maternal branches. 

In the first preceding generation a person has two ancestors ; in the second gener- 
ation he has four; in the third, provided there are no intermarriages of cousins, he has 
eight, in the fourth he has sixteen, and in the fifth he has thirty-two ancestors, and so 
on increasing in geometrical progression. A chart has been prepared and is here 
inserted, showing the genealogy of the compiler of these records through the various 
branches as far back as he could ascertain the facts. On his father's side all his ances- 
tors in this country were of Dutch or Huguenot extraction and connected with the 
Reformed Dutch Church, and the records of that church have been so carefully pre- 
served that they furnish quite a complete chain for five or six generations. Of his 
thirty-two ancestors in the fifth generation preceding his father, there will be found 
the names of all except five. 

On his mother's side his ancestors came from England in 1638 and settled in Lynn, 
Massachusetts; subsequently were among the founders of Southampton and Southold, 
Long Island, and later of Elizabethtown, New Jersey. They were connected with the 
Congregational and Presbyterian Churches, the records of which antedating the Revo- 
lutionary War, are no longer in existence, and other records also have been destroyed ; 
the lineage on the maternal side, therefore, is not so complete as in the other case. 

It may be mentioned as a rather unusual circumstance in this country of mixed 
races, that there is not a. drop of blood in his veins that has come from any ancestors 
whose lineage in America does not go back for a period of more than two hundred years. 

The writer will be pleased t,o have pointed out any errors or omissions which may 
be noted in these paees. It is possible that a second edition may hereafter be issued, 
and in view of this contingency he will be happy to correspond with any persons wnu 
may be able to give information that will make the record more complete. 

Soldiers in the Wars, of the Name of Banta. 

The following lists are probably far from complete. The lists of Revolutionary 

soldiers in New York are taken from the volume recently published at Albany, those 

of New Jersey from a similar work in that State, and those of Pennsylvania from the 

Archives at Ilarrisburg. The lists of soldiers in the War of 1812 and the Mexiean War 



X. Preface. 

are made up mainly from statements made by lliuir descendants. The reports of the 
Adjutant-General of Indiana, giving the names of all soldiers in the Civil War from that 
State, were examined, and a compilation made therefrom shows that nearly fifty bearing 
the name of Banta were enrolled in the regiments of that State. Some of these names 
arc not found in this volume, indicating that many families have not sent their records 
for insertion in this work. As in the earlier circular sent out soliciting information 
specific inquiry was not made as to what members were in the army, it is quite probable 
that many more names should be added to these lists of the Uantas who were numbered 
among the soldiers in the recent conflict : J79

CHAPTER I. 

THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME. 

As is well known, the use of family names was not common among the early 
emigrants from Holland to New Netherlands. To distinguish one John, for example, 
from another, there was added to the name the baptismal name of his father, usually 
with the addition of s, se, or sen, indicating the relationship. Thus: Epke, the son of 
Jacob, was known as Epke Jacobs, or Epke Jacobse. 

Sometimes a surname was derived from the place of birth. Thusr Jan, from the 
town of Wyck, was called Jan Van Wyck to distinguish him from Jan, from the city of 
Norden, who was called Jan Van Norden. Frequently the surname represented the 
trade of its bearer. For instance, Jan, the cooper, was known as Jan Kuiper, and Jan, 
the mason, was Jan Metselaar. 

The progenitor of the Banta family in America did not bear this surname on his 
arrival in this country. In all the records yet found his name appears as Epke Jacobs, 
which, as above stated, means simply Epke, the son of Jacob. Epke is a Frisian name, 
nearly corresponding to the Engliili Egbert. The sons of Epke Jacobs, namely, 
Cornelius, Seba, Hendrick, Derrick (or Dirck), and Weart, appear in the earliest 
records as Cornelius Epke, Seba Epke, or Epkese, etc. The first appearance of the 
family surname Banta, so far as known, is in the records of the Dutch Reformed 
Church of Hackensack, Bergen County, New Jersey, August 22, 1696. On this date 
in the Marriage Register is the following record: 

Johannes Meyer, from New York, with Jannetie Cornelese Banta, from Ackinsack. 

The bride in this case was the first-born child of Cornelius, probably the eldest 
son of the original immigrant, the marriage being the first solemnized of any of the 
Banta family who were born in the New World. 

The following records subsequently appear : 

July 5, 1697. Twins of Cornells Epke and Jannetie De Free were baptized; one 01 
the « itnesses was the wife of Dirck Epke. (The Cornelis Epke here mentioned is the 
s.um. p^ioui. aiiuui.d lu as •i.orncics Liaiua in tiie previous record, DircK h-plcc being 
his brother.) 

July 10. 1698. Received into membership in the church, Antie Sibese Banta (she 
was a daughter of Seba Epke). 

May 21, 1699. There was baptized a child of Seba Epke; a witness was Jacob 
Hendricks Banta, who was a son of Hendrick, brother of Seba Epke. 

Nov. 18, 1699. Cornelese Epke Banta, widower of Jannetie De Free, ninrriod 
Magdalena S.inuiclsc Demarcst. (It will be observed that the groom in this case is the 
same person called Cornelis Epke in the record of July 5, 1697.) 



2 ' Tlif ( ^rii^iii of the Same. 

For a short time thereafter the surnaine of the sons of the immigrant appeared 
sometimes as Epke, and at other times as Banta, until after a few years the latter sur- 
name only was used. 

We cannot dcterniinc whether the family ever bore the name in Holland, and if 
not, why they assumed it in this country. Advertisements have been published in the 
newspapers of Amsterdam and of Friesland, but they have not brought information of 
any persons now bearing the name in the Netherlands. 

The name itself is very ancient. Rev. William Arthur, in his work, "Origin of 
Names," states that Banta is from the Claelic, derived from Beaunta, hills or mountains. 
Others suppose it is derived from bandt, a ban. 

The earliest appearance of the name which has come under our notice is in 
Kemble's "The Saxons in England," published in London, 1876. We quote from 
page 149: 

A very remarkable document of Eadberht, King of Kent, is preserved in the 
Textus Roffcnsis; after the King's own signature, in which he calls himself Rex Can- 
tuariorum, his nobles place their names, thus : "A>p Wilbardus comites mcos confirmare 
etsubscriberefeci;"* and in the same words Dinrheahac, Hosberht, Nothbalth, Banta, 
Ruta and Tidbalth sign. Now the fact of these persons having coinites at all is only 
conceivable on the supposition that they wore all royal, kings or sub-kings. 

The document here referred to is given in full in "A 1 land-Book to the Land Charters 
and other Saxon Documents,"by John Earle, published at Oxford in 1888. It is a charter 
by which Eadberht gives land in the Bishopric of Rochester. Earle remarks: "After 
the signature of the grantor, several other signataries follow who use the same royal 
style, in that they make their Comities to confirm and subscribe." Mr. Kemble has 
dwelt on this deed as conclusive evidence of the plurality of kings in Kent at this date, 
April, 738. This fact has probably not been published before in this country, and in 
view of it, the tradition mentioned in the introduction to this work has a curious interest. 
It is worthy of mention that Friesland, from which the Banta progenitor came to 
the New World, was the original home of the Saxons. In the fifth century, a band of 
the Frisii joined the Saxons and Angles in an invasion of Britain. Motley, in the 
"Rise of the Dutch Republic," says, page 20; 

The free Frisians, whose name is synon\iiu)us with liberty, were the nearest blood 

relations of the Anglo-Saxon race. * ' ' ' * * , ^,' ' ^c 

The Frisian language is intermediate between the Anglo-Saxon and Old Norse. Ut 

all the Teutonic dialects, it shows the closest .Ufinity to English. There is a Frisian 

hterature from the twelfth century. 

It may be noted that as early as 1671, a name nearly identical with that of 
Banta, but which belonged to an entirely different family, appears among the records 
of the Dutch Church in New York City. October ist, 1679, appears the baptism ot a 
child of Jan Pieterszen Bandt and Maria I'ieters. The marriage of these parents is 
recorded April I, 1671, and three other baptisms are recorded in which the name of the 
husband and father is given simply as Jan i leuisztii. Th;:, p..i^uiro ii.i:"c r-— •' 
the records of the Register's Office, New York, Liber 23, folio 159, where in a <Kcd it 
appears as John Peters Bant. His descendants' names appear under the same p.itro- 
nymic, but in some cases they have altered it to Bond. 

The name of Bant also appears early in ihe Boston records, the baptism of a 
daughter of Gilbert and Mary H.inl being recorded April 28, 16S9, and the mairi.ige 
of John Grantham and .M.irllia ILint being solemnized Dec. 8, 1690. 



The I'risian Emigrant. 



One of the Directors of the Dutch West India Company, residing in Zieland in 
1652, was D. Bant or D. Bante, the name appearing with both spellings. 

Bant was the ancient name of an island north of Fricsland, of which we find this 
account in an old Dutch Cyclopedia: 

bant — Alfridius 111, Bishop of Munster, who has also written the life of Lud- 
gerus 1, calls by this name an island of Fricsland, which lies between the Ems and the 
Lauwcrs; the fact that he names it as one of the six prominent districts into which he 
divides the country, is a certain proof that tlie Burchana of the Romans had not been 
diminislicd at the time of Ludgerus, i. c, in the ninth century, so that it was yet 
attached to Bant, which formed the easterly part of it. As the Romans called the 
whole island Burchana, after Bozchem, the principal village on the west side, so 
Alfridius gives it the name of Bant, after another village which lies on the opposite 
side. After both of them had been very much decreased this common name also has. 
been ab.indoned, and the western part has been called Borkna and the eastern part 
Bant. Now-a-days it has become so small that it can hardly be an abode for rabbits, 
much less for men. 

In the life of the holy Ludgerus, just mentioned, reference is made to the "pres- 
byter Bantus and his brother Beatus, by name and in works," who lived on the island 
a hermit life. 

CHAPTER II. 
/ 

THE FRISIAN EMIGRANT. 

The ancestor of the Banta family in America, Epke Jacobs, was a farmer who 
lived in the vicinity of Harlingen, an important seaport of Friesland, the most northern 
of the provinces of Holland. 

Harhngen is at the entrance of the Zuyder Zee, 65 miles north north-east from Am- 
sterdam. It stands on the site of a former town which was engulphed by the sea in the 
year 1134. It is protected by a dyke forty feet high, one of the largest in Holland. 

On the register of the Dutch Church at Bergen, New Jersey, in recording the mar- 
riage of Seba Epke (son of Epke Jacobs), he is stated to have been born at Ooster- 
bicrum, and in a similar record of Hendrick, Dirck and Weart (other sons), their 
Ijirth-place is given as Minnertsga. These are small villages within a mile of the 
Zuyder Zee, and about six and nine miles respectively, northeast of Harlingen. Epke 
Jacobs probably hved between these two villages. They are within the district of 
liarradeel and opposite the island of Schelling. Near them, and about a mile east from 
Oosterbierum, is an old convent called Lidlum. This part of ?"riesland is flat, much 
of it below the level of the sea and protected by dykes. A view of Harlingen copied 
from an ancient print, and views in the two villages named from photographs taken 
specially for this work, will doubtless be regarded with interest. 

The inhabitants of Friesland still retain that strong passion for liberty which distin- 

llie ancient Frisian dialect and accent, which latter circumstance renders the language, of 
llic country people in particular, unintdligible to the other Netherlanders. — Busching. 

The Frieslanders are noted as a tall and muscular race. 

It maybe obsen'ed that the baptismal name "Epke" is very uncommon. Mr. 
James Rikcr, author of the History of Harlem, stated that he had searched in vain 
iii.uiy old Dutch chronicles and histories (full of christian names) for that of Kpke. 
I In- ((iiiipilLT of these records has examined almost all of the early Dutch cliiircli 
• iniid^ ul this country and has found it only when borne by a descendant of l^pke 



4 The Frisian Emigrant. 

Jacobs, the progenitor of the Banta family. Mr. Riker thought it hardly found its 
English equivalent in Egbert, but came nearer the Teutonic Epikur (Epicurus). It 
may be obser^'ed, however, that the eldest son of Cornelius Epke Banta, who was bap- 
tized by the name of Epke, is mentioned in his father's will as Egbert. 

The existing marriage records of Harlingcn date from 1611 and the baptismal 
records from 1613. The baptismal records of Minncrtsga date from 1655, and those 
of Oosterbierum from 1694. Thobc records were searched in the hope that they might 
disclose the name of the wife of Epke Jacobs, the date of his marriage, the bapitism of 
his children, etc., but the examination proved fruitless. 

In volume 14, page 90, of the Colonial Manuscript in the State Library, at Albany 
(copied into N. Y. Documentary History III: 52, 53), there is preserved the first record 
we have found of the forefather of the Bantas, being the bill of charges for passage to 
America. Translated from the Dutch, it reads as follows: 



Epke Jacobs, from Harlengen, firmer (bouinann) Debet.

Upon arrival in the New World he probably settled at Flushing, on the north shore 
of Long Island, about ele\en miles from New York. Unfortunately, all the town 
records of Flushing were destroyed by the burning of the town clerk's house in 1789, so 
that we are cut oft" from information which those records might have revealed. Neither 
his name nor that of his wife appear on the records of any of the Dutch churches here 
that have been preserved. Valentine's Corporation Manual for 1863 contains a page 
headed, " Fac similes of the Original Autographs of the Burgomasters and Schepens, 
and many other distinguished individuals, in the early history of the City of New 
York." Among these names is that of Epke Jacobs, though it is incorrectly stated to 
be "Sibnd Jacobs." Mr. James Kikcr, author of the History of Harlem, had seen the 
signature of Epke Jacobs on an original deed dated in 1685, conveying a farm in Bergen 
Co., N. J., to Hendrick Jorese Brinckerhoff, and recognized this signature of Valen- 
tine's Manual as of the same person. Accordingly, the records of the Clerk of the 
■ Common Council, in the City Hall, New York, were searched, and the following 
mentioned document was brought to light. It became of special interest to us because 
it made known the residence and occupation of the forefather of the Bantas in this 
country, and gave us a specimen of his handw riting, the signature in the volume being 
his own sign-manual. 

The book is labelled: 




On the fly leaf is an inscription in English: 

High Coukt Blottkr.— Dutch. 
Both the label and English inscription, however, are erroneous, the volume really 
being the record of transactions with the notary, Solomon La Chaire. The records, 



The Frisian Emigrant. 5 

of course, are in Dutch, and the penmanship so poor that several words could not be 
understood. Translated, the record as found on pages 83 and 84, is as follows: 

Appeared before me, Solomon La Chaire, Notary Public, admitted, etc., and before 
the after-named witnesses, the worthy Epke Jacobs, innkeeper, living at Flushing, on 
Long Island, known to me, the notary, and acknowledged for himself and his heirs 
really and lawfully to owe to Mr. Nicolais De Meyer, merchant of this city, the sum 
of one hundred and four guilders in good braided commercial sewan, and besides four- 
teen schepcis (bushels) of peas for divers delivered wares received by the said Kpke 

Jacobs of the said De Meyer in the rights, and received in a satisfactory condition. 

He, the said Epke Jacobs, therefore promises to pay the aforesaid one hundred and four 
guilders sewan to the aforesaid De Meyer or his order, upon demand, and the afore- 
named fourteen schepels of peas, on or before the first of October next. The said Epke 
Jacobs pledges his person and goods, movable and immovable, present and future not 

excepted, submitting all of them to the jurisdiction of all courts, rights and judges 

under lien of voluntary condemnation before the Hon. Court of this city, Consenting 

to — — the notary Tiedeman Van Vleek, and to therewith, the notary Mateus 

Devos, consenting to the above without any exception. 

Executed and delivered in a lawful manner, without fraud, at Amsterdam, in N. 

Netherlands, in the presence of Claes Marichael and Meyndert Barents Van , 

trustworthy witnesses, who were invited for the purpose, on the 20th day of June, 




In 1669, he was yet residing at Flushing. From Liber A, of Wills, page 69, in the 
Surrogates office. New York, we find that in September of that year he served with 
John Lawrence, as appraiser of the property of Elizabeth Partridge, deceased. Law- 
rence, subsequently Mayor of New York, was the most prominent and influential man 
of his day in the neighborhood, and from the fact that Epke Jacobs was associated 
with him, it is a fair inference that our ancestor was not without consideration among 
his townsmen. 

Two years later he bought a mill in the adjoining town of Jamaica, as appears 
from the following extracts from the Town Book. The agreements signed by Coe and 
I-pke are copied verbatim : 

January 20, 1669. The town voted to make a dam for a mill, and when it is suffi- 
ciently made, Benjamin Coe agreed to maintain it, and to build and maintain a mill, 
and to grind the town's corn for the twelfth part ; further, Benjamin Coe engaged to 
grind the town's corn before strangers, and the town engaged to bring their corn to the 
null such day in the week as he shall appoint. Fuither, the town gave to Benjamin 
Coe ten acres of salt meadows upon the furthest East Neck, and five acres of boggy 
meadow about the place uhere the mill stands, and upland to it, according to the rest 
1)1 liie lu\wi, upon the account of liie buliuii>g of lli.. luill. 

The following record subsequently appears: 

Know all men by these presents that I, Beniaman Coe ynhabitant of the towno of 
Yemecah due by these presents firmly bind and ingage myself my heires exsccutors 
administrators or asines to mak and set up a good sofitient mill upon the river which is 
bitwine the old towne neck and the Long Neck and to maintain in good Repair so as 
th:n he may grind the towncs corn well and likewise to sarve the towne before strangers 
•nul take but the twelfe part for tousell the towne coming in at such days as the said 
lleni-imin Coe shall apoint them to bring in their corn to grind and likewise the same

streeme prove insotiticnt for a mill then the land to be the said beniamin coe's own 
proper right and likewise when the dam is mad sofitiently according to the judgment 
of such workmen as shall bo made chois of to vew it y the said beniaman coe do ingage 
upon my owne cost and charge to keep it in good Repair from time to time so that the 
towne shall not safer for want of j'rindiiig and likewise if y the said beniaman coe do 
sell the mill the tonne shall have the lirsl Refusale of it. 

In witncs, whereof y have set to my h.ind the Jist September 1671. 

(Signed) Benjamin Coe. 

Beneath the preceding agreement is the following : 

Know all men by these presents, that whereas y Ebkey Jacobsen have bought the 
mill of Benjamin Coe with the consent of the towne, y the said Ebkey Jacobsen do 
firmly bind myself, my heirs, exsecutors or asingnes, to perform the covenants above 
expressed to the utmost of my power, in witness whereof 1 have set my hand this 29 of 
December, 1671. 



-,=2=^^^^ ^!eJLae4^ 



The signature in the New York City Hall had the date affi.xcd, as had the signa- 
ture on the deed to Hendrick Joris Brinkerhoff, mentioned on page 7, and this appears 
to be a peculiarity of F.jjke Jacobse's signature. It may be observed that the above 
signature in the Jamaica Town Hook is at the extreme bottom of the page, leaving no 
room for date underneath. 

The following records are also taken from the Jamaica Town Book: 

Jany. 24, 1675. The town made an agreement with Joseph Carpenter and Caleb 
Carman to build a sawmill and corn mill uhere the old mill stood, on condition that 
they perform the covenant maile with Benjamin Coe. 
Towne Meeting, 22 September, 1680. 

The towne did give liberty to Benjamin Coe to selling a grist mill upon the river 
between Seller Nek and Plunder .\ek, soe far as the towne hath right thereunto. 

Subsequent!), Kpke Jacobs removed to New Jersey, settling at Bergen, opposite 
New York City. At what date this removal occurred we are not advised, but from the 
above extracts we infer it was prior to 1675. Most of the early records of the Town 
of Bergen are lost. Two of his sons were married at Bergen in October, 1678. F"eb- 
ruary 18, 1679, he was appointed one of the Special Court of Oyer and Terminer to be 
held at Bergen, beginning the first Tuesday of March, 1679, the other members of the 
Court being John Berry, President; Lourens Andriesen (Van Buskirk), and Elias 
Michaclson (\'reeland). (Winlield's History of Hudson County, page 100.) 

In 16S1 he purchased land at Ilackens.ick, and with his sons became among the 
earliest settlers of that ancient village. 

1 he nrst deed to l-.pke Jacobs that we Imd on record is in Liber 2, p. 141 of Deeds, 
at Trenton, for land located June, 16S1, consisting of 183 acres, extending from Hacken- 
sack river to Overperk creek (now l-.nn«n as ICnglish Neighborhood creek). The 
settlement hero was known as Old Hackensack. A similar tract adjoining it on the south 
was located at the same time by his son Derrick, or Dirck, recorded 'Liber 2, page 142. 

The following abstract of a deed, recorded in the office of the Proprietors of East 
Jersey, at Perth Amboy, in P. Kent Book A, folio 175, seems to refer to the foregoing. 
Ihciiigh it i^ dated four years subsecpiently :

A deed, not recorded, for property at what is now called Ridgefield Park, on the 
east side of the river, two miles below Hackensack, was in existence a few years ago. 
It was dated June 17, 1685, and was made by Epke Jacobs to Hendrick Joris Brincker- 
hoff, in the possession of whose descendants the land remained for two hundred years. 
Mr. James Riker, before mentioned, examined this deed, which was kept in an old 
oaken chest in the Brinckerhofif homestead, and recalled the peculiar signature of Epke 
Jacobs, with the date 1685 underneath. This land was purchased by Epke Jacobs, of 
Mrs. Sarah Kierstead ; at what date is unknown. 

June 9, 1686, Gawen Lawrie, Governor, deeded to Epke Jacobs, 240 acres on the 
west side of the Hackensack river, north of what is now known as Cherry Hill, and 
extending westward to Wynocksack brook, being i4Vj chains in breadth on the river 
and brook by 170 chains in length. This co\ered what was formerly known as Sluckup 
and is now named Spring Valley. 

A copy of this deed is here appended as found at Trenton, Liber A, folio 323:

A True Copy from Lib. A, fol. 323, etc. (Signed) John Smyth, Pr. Reg. 

This farm came into possession of Cornelius,'- who was doubtless his eldest son and, 
under the law of primogeniture then prevailing, inherited the real estate of his father, 
who died without leaving a will (at least no will has been found of record). Cornelius, 
during his life-time, gave the west half of this farm, if not all of it, to his son John, 
some of whose descendants have continued in possession of a portion of it to this day. 

The latest notice we have found of I'.pke Jacobs is in the "Journal of the Pro- 
cedures of the Governor and Council of the Province of East Jersey," pages 137 and 
138, under date of 23 October, 1686, a verbatim account of which reads as follows: 

The High Shcriffe of the County ot liergen brought here the boddyes of Rowley 
Vanderhide (Ralph Vanderlinde), Andresse Lawrenson, Lawrence Lawrenson, Dericke 
Eptkeyes, Cornelius Christianson, Hans Christianson. Eptkey Jacobs, and Weart 
Ephkey — pursuant to a proclamac'on issued out to the s' High Sheriffe for a Riote by 
them comitted in the s' Countv. and for Refiisein" to nbrv the Kinf'.; niithorifv thore 
and sundry Depositions being here Keail, and also sundry warr'', and the Sheriffes 
Retorne thereupon, wherein appeares the grc.it insolency of the s' p'sons in breach of 
the Kings peace, and Contempt of the L.iwes of this province — the pr'misses being 
duely Considered and upon mature C<ln^,uier.lc'on, It's unanimously agreed and ordered 
that the above s' p'sons, and every of theni st.ind Close Comitted to ye Com'on (laole 
of Wooobridge there to Remaine imtill they shall give good and sufficient security, 
and that in the sume of IC.nch of them one lliiiidred pounds, before some Justice of 
peace in this Cftunty, for their p'son.ill .ip|n-.ii.iTne att the next Court of Com'on Right 
to bee held att the Towne of Aniboy I'e.th il„- secnd Tuesday in the month of Apr.ll

now next ensueing, to Answer the p'misscs, and that in the mcanc tyine to bee of the 
good behaviour, &c ; and also that Im'ediately bee Committed to the hands and Cus- 
tody of the High Sheriffe of iniddx, who is hereby Required in the Kings name to take 
the said p'sons into his Custody and them safely keepe untill the shale give such secu- 
rity as above, or bee Discharged by due Course of Law. 

It's also agreed and ordered that Major John Berry issue out his warr' to the 
sheriffe of the County of Bergen, to take into his Custody the boddy of Lawrence 
Andress of Bergen and him safely keepe, soe that hee may have his boddy att the next 
Court ofCom'on Right to bee held at Amboy the second Tuesday in the month of 
Aprill next, to Answer to such Articles and things as shall be objected ag' him upon 
the p't and behalfe of our Lord the King &c. 

We have not been able to find any further particulars of this affair. The records 
of the Middlesex County Court from 1683 are preserved in the County Clerk's Oftice 
at New Brunswick, N. J., but they contain no reference to the matter. Remembering 
that all authority in the Province at this period was vested in the Proprietors, the 
Governor even being appointed by them, and that the title to the land was derived 
fram them, usually under a stipulation to pay a small annual rental, it would seem 
probable that the difficulty was in reference to a dispute about the title to land. Law- 
rence Andress was one of the Governor's council, and all of the persons named were 
large land-holders, owning adjoining farms on the east side of the Hackensack whose 
title was derived from the Proprietors. We feel warranted in concluding, therefore, 
that Epke Jacobs and his two younger sons, with the other sturdy Dutch farmers, were 
not engaged in a lawless riot, but were standing up manfully for what they deemed- 
their rights, and this view seems to be supported by the fact that all proceedings against 
them wer(j abandoned. 

Possibly the following reference may explain the matter — 

In one of the "rent books" of Gawen Lawrie, Governor at the Proprietors' office, 
Perth Amboy — called " Reseats and Pardon's Books"— William Pardon being collector 
of the rents, appear the following entry: 

"Apke Jacobs" and others in payment of rents received by the Proprietors 1673 
1685, in which Jacobs is credited ^13. I. 9. [He and his associates had 2,260 acres.] 

It is conjectured that the persons named had declined to pay rent to the Proprie- 
tors, but their arrest caused them to think better of it, and that this "reseat" is an 
acknowledgment that they paid up all arrears. 

The name of the wife of Epke Jacob Banta nowhere appears, and the only mention 
of her is in the passage receipt given on p. 4. It is probable that she died prior to the 
removal to Xew Jersey, as otherwise her name would likely be found as witness to the 
baptism of her grandchildren. Neither her name nor that of her husband's appears 
as members of any of the churches whose records are extant. It may be observed that 
there was no Dutch church at Flushing nor at Jamaica at the time of their residence 
there. 

As we have not been able to nnd tlie recura of 'u.ipiisui uf .i..^ o.'' '." 

of Epke Jacobs, we are not certain as to the order of their birth. The account lur 
passage given on page 4 states the ages of his sons, but does not give their n.mu s. 
In the church register at Bergen and Hackensack we find the names of five sons, .in. I 
assume that these were the children who came with their parents from Holland. .\^ 
only twenty-two years elapsed between the time of their arrival in this country ami llir 
marriage of the last one of their sons, it is not probable that any of the >(iung i im 
giants died here in infancy and other sons were born after arrival. We have ^;i\i 11 iIm- 



It/ion ; Ephc 



year of birth of the sons, however, on tlic assumption that they were all born in Holland, 
and have used our best judgment in arranging them as to seniority.

CHAPTKR III. 
THIRD (;eneration. 



2. C0RNELIUS2 EPKE BANTA married for his first wife Jannctie, daughter of 
Jan de Pre and Jannetie de Ruine, ulio was baptized in New Amsterdam Dec. 3, 1662. 
Mary Peeck, wife of Jan Pceck, made a contract for the sale of a house and lot in 
Smith's Valley, New Amsterdam, August 19, 1660, to Jan de Pre, as appears from the 
records in the Register's Office, New York. Jan de Pre resided in Flushing in 1661, 
and was a member of the church at New Utrecht at its organization in 1677. The 
church record states that he removed to Staten Island and Bergen, without men- 
tioning dates. It is probable that Cornelius and Jannctie were married at New Utrecht; 
the early marriage and baptismal records of that church, however, are missing. 

By his first wife he had seven children, and by his second wife he had si.\ more. 
We do not find the record of the baptism of the first born. We think it very probable 
that one or two of these were baptized at New Utrecht, and the others, as well as those 
children of his brothers born between 16S2 and 1(194, were baptized at the Huguenot 
church at Kinderkamack, above Hackensack, which existed for a brief period only, 
and whose records have entirely disappeared. (Sec Ur. David D. Demarest's interest- 
ing pamphlet, "The Huguenots on the Hackensack.") 

We are not certain where he resided when he first removed to the vicinity of 
Hackensack. Many deeds in those early times were never recorded. That part of the 
present Bergen County west of Hackensack river belonged to Essex County prior to 
1709, and the first book of Deeds of Ksse.\ County covering that period has for a long 
time been missing. We think it probable that he owned land on the east side of the 
river opposite Hackensack, at what is now known as Bogota, as well as west of the river. 

In 1695, with his three brothers and six other men he bought a large tract of land 
running from Overpeck creek to the Hudson river, and more than two miles in breadth 
from north to south. It comprised about three thousand acres, for which the sum of 
one hundred pounds was paid. , It included within its bounds a large portion of the 
present townships of Knelewond and l'ali';-irlr W'- 'yxn -, ,orK-.f;t^ copy of thl; J.^^J

Dec. 3, 1702, Cornelius Epke Banta bought of Richard Pope 240 acres of land on 
the west side of the Hackensack river, extending to \Vynocksack brook and adjoining 
on the north a similar tract which had been bought by his father in 1686, and which 
undoubtedly had now become his by inheritance. This tract of 240 acres Cornelius 
gave to his oldest son, Epke, by endorsement on the deed, September 7, 171 1. 

The first wife of Cornelius Epke Banta died after giving birth to tsvins, July 5, 1697, 
and on November 18, 1699, he married at Hackensack, her cousin, Magdalena, daughter 
of Samuel Deniarest and Maria De Ruine,who was born in New York City, April 2 1,1680.* 

For a third wife he married, March i, 1719, Abeltie (or Ablech), daughter of Pieter 
Janscn Slot, and widow of Adam Van Orden. Cornelius Epke Banta died in May, 
1719. His will is the only one we have found of the five brothers who came from 
Holland, and we give it in full, verbatim:

those for lands in Bergen were recorded in the Bergen Town Book, which has] been 
lost, and it is probable that Epkc Jacobs and others of his sons beside Seba owned land 
in Bergen of which we have no record. Seba Banla, with his brothers, bought in 1695 
a large tract of land on the Palisades, as mentioned on page 11. In the year 1700 his 
name, together with his brother Hcndrick and Weart (probably his brother Weart's 
son), appears among the signers of the Remonstrance of Inhabitants of East Jersey to 
the King against the Acts of the Proprietors, and asking for the appointment of a 
competent Governor. — N. J. Archives, ist series, vol. 2, p. 326.

4. HENDRICK-! EPKE BANTA, married at Bergen, N. J., Nov. 17, 1678, 
M.iritje Lubbertse Westervelt, "in presence of the Court." He united with the church 
at Berge.^, March 29, 1680, and at the organization of the church at Hackensack in 
1686 he was chosen one of the Deacons, and installed into office July 25, 1686. May, 
1705, he was chosen an Elder of the church. He married a second time, Angenitie 
Hendricks. In 1700 he signed the Remonstrance to the King before referred to. 
April 13, 1740, the names of Hcndrick Epke Banta and wife appear as witnesses at the 
baptism of a child of Weart Banta. If this is correct he lived to be at least 85 years 
of age, but we are inclined to think there is an error in the record, and that it was 
intended for his son or grandson. 

A deed dated June 10, 1708, acknowledged July 19, 1717, and recorded in Book A 
of Deeds, p. 85, at Hackensack, sets forth that Hcndrick Epke Banta, Yeoman of 
Hackensack, in consideration of provisions in his last will, bearing even date, has sold 
to his son, Jacob Hendrick, the following pieces of land: First, a lot now in pos- 
session of Jacob, bounded west by Hackensack river, east by the Queen's road, north 
by Henr; Joris Brinkerhoff and south by John Cornelius Bogert. (BrinkerhofTs land 
was the tract bought from Epke Jacobs.) This deed indicates that Hendrick owned 
land adjoining on the south that sold by his father to Brinkerhoff in 1685. 

He bought a share of the land between the Overpeck creek and the Hudson 
river, in connection with his brothers and others, as set forth on page 10.

5. DERRICKS (or DIRCK) EPKE HANTA married at Bergen, N. J., Oct. 7, 
1681, Ester, daughter of Hans and Margricte Uedrick. Hans Dedrick kept an inn at 
Bergen, which was the second one hccnscd in tliat town (Feb. 13, 1671). He was a 
Lieutenant of the Bergen Militia, and was one of tlie patentees of Acquackenonck, 
May 28, 1679. 

The record on the Bergen Church Register states that the marriages of Derrick and 
that of his brother, Weart, on the same day, were the first celebrated "in the new 
church." He joined in the purchase, with his brothers and others, of the large tract of 
land on the Palisades already referred to. He and his wife united with the church at 
Hackensack, May i, 1689. He was elected Deacon, May 4, 1699, and Church Warden 
in 1707. 

In the minutes of the Consistory under date of May 1708, appears the following 
entry : 

As Church Warden Dirck Epke Banta to keep his ofifice yet for this year, to 
whom has been added Joost De Banc, which two aforesaid Church Wardens caused in 
this year, 1708, the steeple to be built on the Ackinsack Church which has here been 
recorded in their praise. 

In May, 1715, he was chosen an Elder. October 15, 1717, he was appointed Sur- 
veyor of the highways "by two of His Majesty's Justices." At that time he lived at 
Winkleman, which was on the east side of the Hackensack River, between Old Hack- 
ensack and Hackensack.

6. WEART 2 EPKE BANTA (or Wiert, as it is usually found in earliest records), 
probably the youngest of the five sons, married at Bergen, Oct. 7, 1681, Gerritje, the 
daughter of Jillis Mandeville, who owned a large farm at Greenwich, in the vicinity of 
the present Ninth Ward of New York City. The records of the Dutch Church in New 
York contains the publication of the banns, Sept. 15, 1681. It was the custom of the 
times to proclaim the banns of marriage in the church on three successive Sundays. All 
the children of Weart- Epkc were baptized in New York, though they were born at 
Hackensack. The witnesses at the baptism of Elsie in 1687 were Jan Pieterszen and 
Maria Bon, to which attention is called because Jan Pieterszen was doubtless the ancestor 
of the Bant family, which, though of somewhat similar name, had another origin. 

Wiert and his wife joined the church at Hackensack, May i, 1689. He died 
within a very few years thereafter, as is evirlent frrm-v t'l-- <":.ct ;Iu.l on. liili ol jiilis Alan-

near Boston, by whom she had several children who were baptized at Hackensack.

FOURTH GENERATION. 
Cornelius 2 Epke.i 

7. JANNETIE BANTA MEYER,3 see page 21. 

8. EPKE^ BANTA, called Egbert in his father's will which gave him his sword 
as a birthright, received from his father a deed for 240 acres of land (on survey 
found to contain 254 acres), extending from the Hackensack river to Wynocksack brook 
(now called Sprout brook). His father had bought this property from Richard Pope, 
Dec. 3, 1702, and conveyed it to his son Epke, Sept. 7, 171 1, by endorsement on the 
back. As was quite common in those days, the deed was not recorded, and we be- 
came acquainted with the fact in this wise. The original grantor of the land was Peter 
Sonmans, one of the " Proprietors," who gave a deed for it 30th August, 1686, at which 
time he was under age. To cure the defect in the title, Peccr Sonmans executed another 
deed Dec. 2, 1728, to Cornelius* Banta, called therein the son and heir of Epke^ Banta, 
who was the son of Cornelius- Epke Banta, and this latter deed, recorded at Hacken- 
sack in Liber B; folio 308, sets forth all the facts. 

Epke, 3 born at Hackensack, married Jannetie du Rye, April 3, 1707. He died 
prior to Dec. 2, 1728, his widow marrying Thomas Cutwater, June 28, 1730. His two 
sons died unmarried, and the farm was inherited by his two daughters who divided it 
between them. 

Liber C, folio 52, at Hackensack, records a deed from Francyntie Earle, wife of 
Nathaniel Earle, blacksmith, of Stein Rapie, to Henry Mayer, Yeoman of Quacksack, 
for 127 acres, house, barns, orchards, etc. The deed recites that the farm of 254 acres 
descended jointly to Jannetie Van Zaen and said Francyntie heiress and "juberitrix " 
of the said land and now equally divided between them — land bounded on the south 
by John Banta, on the north by Jacolius Van Voorhees and Hannis Losier, on the 
east by the Hackensack river, and west by the Sprout brook. Liber C, folio 54, 
records a conditional deed of the property by Henry Mayer to his loving son-in-law, 
Nathaniel Earle — land bounded on the west by Jacob Van Zaen, which indicates that 
the original farm of 254 acres was divided by a line running north and south, midway 
between Hackensack river and the Sprout brook. Van Zacn taking the westerly half 
and Earle the easterly portion.

Amcrsfort, April 3, 1708. He is not mentioned in his father's will, having already 
received the gift of a farm adjoining on the south the farm given to his brother Epke''. 
He died subsequent to 1750, as we learn from a paper in the nature of a will dated in 
tliat year, in the possession of his descendant, Cornelius H. B.inta of Spring Valley, 
N. J., a copy of which is here given verbatim: 

John Banta, of Hackensack, in consideration of /60, d., give and grant to my four

called Wybiig in Killetye, thence northerly along s^ run to the north line of John 
Van Orden till it comes to the road, tlien southerly along s^ road to the line of Yost 
Hoskirk, thence easterly along sJ line till it comes to Moreess Kill, then northerly

Francintie and Marya (sic), but if Marya should come die without heirs of her one 
body, then her money shall be divided among my children Cornelius, Eva, Jannetie, 
Francyntie and Margrety, but I say if Marya should come for to live till she 
can't work you, Cornehus, E., J., F. and Margarette shall give her each lo shilhngs 
a year as long as she lives, and you shall after her decease share all as is left equal, 
but if she should come to marry she is to have no more than her sixty pounds and 
share of the Mue Bills as equal with my dauglitcrs as is aforementioned that is, Eva, 
J., F. and M. is for to share her share of my daughter Marye should come for to die 
before she is not able for to work no more, but if God should be pleased for to let her 
for to live and can't work, then I desire that my aforesaid children, Corn., Eva, J., F. and 

M., should each give her the ten shillings a year besides her sixty pounds after 

the death of said John Banta and my uifc Cornelia — one of the best horses I do give 
unto my son Cornelius and all the rest of my land lying on the west side of a run of water 
called the Muelekel— I do give and grant unto my son Cornelius Banta, wherefore my 
son C. shall pay to my daughter Marya the sum of 15 pounds one year after that 1, the 
s<i John Banta and my wife Corneli.i are dead and gone. Shall remain in the possession 
of sd John Banta and'Cornelia, his wife, for her maintaining during her lifetime. 

Dated May i, 1750. 

Jan Banta lived west of the present Spring \'alley road, about two miles north-west 
of Hackensack. All his children except the youngest, were baptized at Hackensack. 
She was baptized at Schraalenburgh.

7. JANNETIE3 BANTA, born in Hackensack, married at that place, Aug. 22, 
1696, Jan or Johannes Meyer, who was baptized in New York, June 12, 1667. He was 
a son of Martin Janszen Meyer, from Elsvliet, Holland, who probably is identical with 
Martin Janszen Van Breuckelen, who resided in New Amersfort as early as 1653, and 
who was Schepen there in 1656, 1657 and 1658. He was married Nov. 19, 1662, to 
Hendrickye Hermans, from Amsterdam. He and his wife made a joint will, dated 
March 16, 1693, which is recorded in the Surrogate's office, New York. 

The baptism of the eldest and the youngest of the children of Johannes "Meyer is 
recorded at Hackensack, while the record of the others is found on the books of the 
Lutheran Church, formed in New York in 1674, now located on the corner of Broome 
and Mulberry streets. These books indicate that the minister was accustomed to go to 
Hackensack and other places about New York to baptize children whose parents were 
in sympathy with the Lutherans. 

The will of Johannes Meyer (many of his descendants adopted the spelling Myer) 
was dated March 25, 1742. He is described as of " Sadol (Saddle) river in the County 
of Bergen and Province of New Jersey." The will was proved in Newark, N. J., and 
filed in Trenton, N. J., and letters were granted to his son, Johannes, April 10, 1755. 
The children mentioned were Martin (the eldest), Cornelius, Johannes, Isaac, Jacob 
and Abram Myer, Marijtie Prevoost (Brevoort) and Rachel Labagh.

with the proviso that if the former died without issue, his share ot the patrimony 
should be divided between the sons of his brother Jacob. 

We do not find the record of the baptism of his son John, and are not certain 
whether he was by the first or second wife, but assume that he was by the second wife. 
This son John was blind, and died without issue.

He removed from Bergen County to Somerset County, N. ]., and was an Elder of the 
church at Bedminster, Oct. 25, 1758. The baptismal records of that church have not 
been preserved, but at least four of his children were born while he was living in that 
county, whose date of birlli we c.innot determine. About ten years later, with a 
colony from New- Jersey he removed to Conewago, York County, Pa., near the present 
site of Gettysburg, and was a member of tlie church there at its formation, and proha- 



so Fifth Gc/nralion; Haidrick-^ Hcntlrick' Epke.^ 



bly an Elder. The oldest document on record in York County is a deed given by one 
Van Arsdalc in 1768 for land described therein as adjoining land of Henry Banta, 
which fixes the date of emigration to Pennsylvania as early as 1768. The only records 
of the Concwago church that have been preserved are a few scattering items of the 
Consistory, and the baptismal register which is partially illegible. The latter begins 
Oct. 23, 1769, and on this date, among others, a child of Henry Banta was baptized. 
About 1780 with a colony from Conewago he migrated to Kentucky, and located at 
first near Boonsborough, on the Kentucky river, to which place Captain Daniel Boon 
had moved with his family four or five years previously and made a settlement. " . 

Collins' History of Kentucky, p. 521, says: "White Oak Spring, sometimes called 
Hart's Station, one mile above Boonsborough, was settled in 1779 by Capt. Nathaniel 
Hart and some Dutch families from Pennsylvania." * » » "Not far is a spring 
twelve feet square at the top and one hundred feet deep, boiling up pure, cold and 
fresh and tlowing off in a large and constant stream." 

P. 529: "White Oak Station was settled in 1779. The settlers were composed 
principally of families from Pennsylvania — orderly, respectable people, and the men 
good soldiers. But they were unaccustomed to Indian warfare, and of some ten or 
twelve men all were killed except two or three." 

P. 523: "The first Dutch emigration to Kentucky in a company was in 1781, to 
White Oak Spring Station, on Kentucky river, Madison county, one mile above Boons- 
borough. Among the immigrants were Henry Banta, sr., Henry Banta, jr., Abraham 
Banta and John Banta. A little later the colonists went where Harrodsburg now stands, 
but in the course of a few years they established themselves permanently about a village 
now called Plcasure\ ille, then Six Mile, in Henry County. There some of them pur- 
chased twelve thousand acres of land which tliey called the 'Low Dutch Tract,' and 
divided it among themselves." 

Those whose attention has not been directed to the subject, can have no adequate 
idea of the hardships and the perils of this long journey from eastern Pennsylvania to 
Kentucky. At that period Concwago was almost at the western limit of settlement, 
and between it and Kentucky w.is an unbroken wilderness of over six hundred miles. 
The road by which these pioneers travelled was doubtless that known as " The Wilder- 
ness road," which passed through the valley of Virginia, between the Blue Ridge and 
the Alleghanies, and across the mountains by Cumberland Gap to Fort Harrod. The 
road was really only a "trace." No wagon passed over it until at least fifteen years 
later, and these colonists were compelled to journey on foot and with pack-horses. 
The " pack-saddle" was a foikcd branch of a tree fastened on the horse, upon which 
were hung all the household goods and provisions. One of the early accounts of such 
a journey in 1779, describes the "men on foot with their trusty rifles on their shoulders, 
driving stock and leading pack-horses, and the women, some walking with pails on 
their heads, others riding with children in their laps, and other children swung in 

ing on stinted allowances of stale bread and meat, encountering bears, wolves and wild- 
cats in the narrow bridle-path overgrown with brush and underwood." Another 
account mentions that a colony, migrating to Kentucky in 1783, had reached within 
half a dozen miles of the first settlement in the territory, when seven families of the 
train stopped to encamp for the night, the others passing on. That night the Indians 
attacked the families who had encamped and all were killed except one man. One of 
llcnry^ B.mta's sun') w, is killed by the Indi.ins in Kentucky. 



Fifth Centraiion ; HendrUk-^ HauMck- lipke.^ 



At the time of removal to Kentucky, Henry ^ Banta was the father of twenty-one 
children, of whom three had died in infancy, and his oldcst'son had recently died leaving 
nine children, who were brought up by their grandfather. Five or six of his sons were 
married, two of whom, Samuel and Peteriiis, remained for awhile in Pennsylvania, as did 
his three married daughters. His family, who accompanied him in this toilsome, dan- 
gerous journey of several months' duration, consisted of his wife and twelve children, 
five of whom were under twelve years of age, and nineteen grandchildren, almost all of 
whom were under twelve years of age. 

An account of the settlement of the " Low Dutch Tract," written by Mr. George 
W. Demaree, was published in the Shelby Courant, Shelbyville, Ky., May 15, 1873, 
and so much of it as refers to the Banta family is quoted therefrom, to illustrate some 
of the difficulties these hardy pioneers encountered in building their new homes on 
" the dark and' bloody ground ": 

1 propose to devote this chapter to the origin of the purchase and final settlement 
of the Dutch tract, together with incidents connected with the men who figured in this 
part of our history. 

About ten years before the final settlement was effected — i. e., about the year 1785, 
Capt. Daniel Banta, Cornelius Banta and John Banta, Sr., followed the "trace" leading 
from Harrod's station in Mercer County to Hoagland's station, in what was afterwards 
Shelby County, till within a few miles of the latter place where they boldly plunged 
into the wilderness, and built a cabin about two miles north-east of Hoagland's station 
and what was afterwards known as the old Magruder farm, now the property of Thomas 
Eaton, Esq. This was, beyond doubt, the first cabin built in the limits of the Dutch 
tract. It was constructed of blue ash logs, and was torn down but a few years ago, . 
after having braved the storms for more than eighty winters. The Bantas, while oh 
their hunting expeditions, doubtless saw a considerable part of the tract of land after- 
wards purchased by the Dutch Company — though hardly all of it, as it was no child's 
play to explore so vast a wilderness. I have no means at hand of knowing the precise 
number of acres contained in the original survey, but from my knowledge of the. 
boundary thereof 1 presume it could not be less than fifteen or twenty thousand acres. 
The Bantas had enjoyed their novel position but a short time when one of those period- 
ical storms of wrath burst in upon the frontier settlements, and they wisely retired to 
Hoagland's station. This station was poorly manned and provisioned at the time, and 
was threatened daily with an attack from the redskins. So squally did the times 
"become that the little garrison determined to send to Harrod's btation for re-inforccments, 
etc. Jake Banta, an officer of the fort (brother to the other Bantas), volunteered to 
perform the dangerous mission. The wilderness being full of prowling savages, he 
chose the darkness of night to pass through the "narrows" on the waters of Benson 
Creek, near where Hardinsville now is. But poor Jake never reached Harrod's station. 
As he crept silently and all alone in the darkness of night through the dreaded "narrows", 
the redskins pounced upon him from ambush and cleaved his skull with the tomahawk. 
They left Capt. Banta on the tragic spot with his own tomahawk buried in his skull as a to- 
ken of their fierce vengeance. The loss of this brave man was deeply felt by the frontier 
settlement. As soon as the storm had subsided our three heroes, who had taken an 
active part in the exciting scenes with which they were surrounded, went back to 
Harrod's station fully satisfied that tHeir attempt to take possession of an isolated wil- 
d^iutjj „L tli.a li;..v. ..^o i;v.Lr..'.tUL... Il c..:i h:.. .'.!j- '": 'l-^-'^*"'! t'r't- t'lcT good report 
of the excellent quality of these lands, carried back to the Dutch Company of which 
they constituted a part, led to the purchase and ultimate settlement of the same. The 
Banta family was both dreaded and hated by the Indians. Heing men of wonderful 
strength and constitution, and brave to a fault, they had taught the savages many lessons 
in their own mode of warfare. If all their conflicts with the Indians, the heroism of 
their women, etc., were traced by the pen of an able writer, a book of truly thrilling 
adventures would be the result. The writer remembers hearing the old folks talk 
of "Shaker John Banta." This circumstance led him to in((uirc into the origin of 
the a|)pcllation, and his researches have satisfied him tliiit the Shaker Society of Kentucky 



Fifth Gcu-nUion ; Ilcndrick-^ Hendrick- Epht 



had its origin in the hinits of the Uutcli Settlement — /, e., in Shelby County, about the 
year A. D. 1804. The first Shaker meeting held in Kentucky, beyond doubt, was held 
at the house of John Ikmta, who was one of the original members of that sect in this 
State, hence the name Shaker John IJanta. Some of the Voorhees and Montforts 
adopted the Shaker system at the same time. 

I doubt not that the long custom of the Dutch Company to have certain things 
"common," such as tools, farming implements, mills, etc. (the writer has seen the 
"Dutch Company sledge hammer" many times, and he doub(s not that it is now in use 
in Henry County, where he last saw it), had no little to do in preparing the minds of 
those good men to receive the friendly, though absurd, doctrine of Ann Lee. The 
doctrine of Ann Lee met with but poor success, however, with the mass of the company, 
hence John Banta and his few associates separated from them and returned to Mercer 
County, and purchased the present site of Pleasant Hill. The result is familiar to 
everybody. 

The following extract from a Kentucky paper on the same subject is also given. 
Among the purchasers mentioned will be found several of the sons and sons-in-law of 
Henry* Banta: 

AN OLD COLONY 

Who Settled Neak I'leasukkville and Purchased Land from 
Squire Boone. 

[Kmiiuiue Constitutionalist. ] 

While this section of Kentucky was all forest and inhabited by Indians, the "Low 
Dutch colony" came and located on land now in and around where Pleasureville is now 
situated. The land was then owned by Squire Boone, brother of Daniel Boone, the 
famous pioneer. The colony purchased about 10,000 acres in 1774, and it is as remark- 
able as true that some descendeuts of this colony now reside on a portion of the original 
purchase. The company had a.tiustce whos'.- duty it was to look after all the estate, as 
the thirty or more settlers with their families resided in a fort built of logs and stones. 
The hostility of the Indians forced the "Low Dutch colony" to remove to Mercer and 
Clsrk Counties in a short while, but they returned in 1786. The Bantas, Bergins and 
Shucks still own the land of their ancestors, together with inany old relics and papers 
which they value very highly. 

Papers show that thirty-four lots of land were purchased by the company, varying 
in size from two hundred acres and upward, which was paid for in pounds, shillings and 
pence. The following is the number of each lot, purchaser, and price paid:

Fifth Geiuratwn ; lUnUiUI:-^ Jhiidyick'- Kpke. 53 



Mr. Richard Shuck showed us a deed for a section of this land whidhV^s signed 
by Jas. L. Wliittaker, Shelby County Clerk, on July 22, 1833, which was a cdn\<eyancc 
to Ceo. Bergin and Tunice Vannyse as Trustees, the land being originally settlejt^y 
Abrani lianta. The old spring of water which used to supply the colony with watiiir^ 
is still in use. ''W/v 

We give, also, a letter preserved in the Theological Seminary, Reformed Church, /* 
at New Brunswick, N. J., which shows the religious condition of the State at that early 
period, and evidences that the venerable Elder, then seventy-six years of age, was still 
earnest in his Master's cause: 

Extract of a letter from a friend to the Dutch church after his re- 
turn FROM A visit to Kentucky, dated Jan. 20, 1794. 

As 1 viewed almost every settlement in the Kentucky country, and tarried some 
time at different places, I had a very good opportunity to learn the state of religion 
and what progress the Gospel had made there, an account of which I doubt not but 
will be acceptable to you. 

The concern and works of ministers of various denominations which I saw there, 
to form congregations, svas such that 1 was astonished. The people in general seem 
to be more concerned about their eternal welfare than any place I have been in. I 
have seen much devotion among them and heard many of their preachers, some of 
whom made use of e.xpressions that would by no means be acceptable to our congrega- 
tions. 1 have never seen more preachers and travelling preachers in my life than 1 did 
there for the term of time — consisting of Presbyterians, Regular Baptists, Separate 
Baptists, Methodists and two Universalists, with several of whom 1 had the pleasure of 
conversing and thus got much intelligence, the particulars of which would be too much 
for a letter. I shall therefore be particular only in regard to our Low Dutch in that 
country, with the most of whom I am acquainted and with whom I principally resided 
while there. They are very numerous, scarcely credible considering the time the 
country has been settled. There are nearly 500 families, the major part live well, and 
if formed into a society they might make up ^^150 annually to support a minister, be- 
sides a good parsonage. These people are at present in a good deal of confusion, and 
no wonder they consider themselves as a people forsaken by the church to which they 
formerly belonged and from which they have long waited for help. They would before 
no.w have fallen in with other denominations, but many of them are firm friends to our 
church constitution and very loth to part with our church forms, besides still entertain- 
ing some hope that our Synod will yet provide for them. They have at present no 
public worship of their own excepting the lecturing of old Mr. Henry Banta, and 
praying societies, which is not attended to by many, especially when within reach of 
preaching of any kind whatever. They are much exposed to be led astray by 
heterodox preachers, viz.: Separate Baptists and Methodists who are doing all in their 
puuer to gain them over to their churches, but have not as yet been able to effect it. 
They gained one person, viz.: Mr. ^■*' Albert Banta, who joined the Separate 
H:iptisls, and without license commenced preaching, and for some time made much 
dislurb.mce among them, some favoring but the greater part opposed him, and by 
wh.u 1 could learn he would no more be permitted to officiate for them. The oppo- 
sition he met with made him move to a considerable distance from the Dutch 
•leulcment. ISut notwitnstanding this, some ot tlieir leadmg men entertaineu senii- 
nunts which, to me, were altogether new and strange, and which I firmly believe the 
presence of an orthodox minister would easily remove. A particular affair to which I 
was an eye-witness I cannot help mentioning: 

A number of them had children to baptize; they procured a minister of their own 
choosing on condition he' should use our Form of IJaptism, though only as far as he 
should tliink proper. He only read the explanatory part and then, without answer or 
promise of any kind, baptized seventeen children. 

Some of the people present expressed their dissatisfaction at this; but one of their 
I' ailing men, and the principal one among them, stepped up and said that the minister 



54 I-"'ftli Gaienilw,! : llcndrkk'' HcmlrUk- Epke.'^ 

had done right, and that it was wioml,' to cause an unconverted person to make answer 
of that nature. After hearing; ami -irrini; what I have mentioned, and especially the 
trouble and cost of other denoniinatimi^ to extend their churches, I was astonished and 
much dissatisfied at the conduct df our S\nod — that they have never sent one mission- 
ary into that country. This led nie to question myself in the following manner : 
Whether other denominations had not more concern for their churches than we have 
for ours? whether our young ministers have not the same courage and resolution, and 
zeal for the cause of Christ that otheis have? whether our Synod could not do a part 
of the same trouble and cost that others do? and whether that rising generation in the 
Kentucky country, orij^inally of our chinch, were to be a forsaken people? 

I heard several ministers of diffeient denoininations, who were acquainted with the 
situation of these people, express their surprise at the conduct of our Synod — saying 
their people are in general very mor.il. they are strict in their observances, they have 
their church forms of which they are \ ery tenacious, and yet we see no provision made 
for them. Other preachers there, especially Separate Baptists and Methodists, often 
endeavor to break their attachment to our church by saying that our Synod have suf- 
ficiently shown by their conduct tliat tliey pay no attention to them, and that waiting 
longer will only be in vain — and in reality they are almost out of patience. However, 
they have now sent a call to the Ciassis of New Brunswick for any minister of our 
church they can get, but in my opinion one is required who is very well qualified for 
the business. Many of these people h.ue not subscribed for this call, giving for reason 
they might hear him first. I sincerely pray they may be successful, for if they do not 
get one soon, or if nothing else is done for them, they are without doubt lost to our 
church; but I am persuaded that if our Synod were acquainted with their real situation 
they would do more for them than they h.ive hitherto done. 

The following communication, published by Rev. Dr. David D. Demarest, of New 
Brunswick, N. J., in the Christian Iii/i/tigfiufr, of New York, March 26, 1890, will also 
be of interest : 

The Mr.MORi.\L ok ihe Kentucky Settlers. 

Mr. Editor: Many of the readers of the Intelligencer \\diVC expressed great interest 
in the accounts you have been pleased to publish of the Dutch emigration to Kentucky 
in the last century. 1 know that the publication of the following memorial addressed 
to Congress, and of the letter of introduction by Dom. J. M. Van Harlingen, will be a 
great gratification to them. Copies of the originals were obtained by me through the 
kindly aid of Prof. Scott, of Rutgers Colleije, from the State Department at Washington. 

Mr. Theodore Roosevelt, in his fascinating work, "The Winning of the West," 
says that 150 he.-ids of families of Low Dutch people came in a body to Kentucky in 
1780, and he refers to this memorial as authority. But he made a mistake by failing to 
notice that only one-third of the 150 nanus attached to the inemorial were names of 
actual residents at the time; the other two-thirds were names of their friends who in- 
tended to come and settle with them on the lands that should be acquired, but who were 
at the time in their homes at Conewago, Pa., as the baptismal records of that church 
show, and perhaps some were still in New Jersey. 

The emigration to Kentucky was by detachments. A few families went as early as 
1771. We have no reason to think thnt a rhrrr-h "-k: orrrnniTPH nntil thn orri. .1 
among them of the Kev. Peter Labagh in 1796. But they had a meeting-house long 
before that time, located where is now the village of Pleasureville, and they doubtless 
held regular services under the direction of the Voorleser, and of Hendrick Banta, tin- 
Exhorter. 

The reader will notice that in some instances a name is spelled in various ways. I 
have in several cases presumed to try to aid those who are not skilled in interpreting 
signatures of that period by inserting modern forms in brackets. 

I also call attention to the fact that no date is attached to these documents. The 
copyist, in an arompanying note, assigns them to 1783. He must have had some 
authority for saying so, and we feel sure of his correctness when we call to mind that

we learn from other sources that a grant Of 12,000 acres of land was obtained which was 
divided among the settlers in 1784. 

Ne^v Brunswick, Feb. 17th, 1890. ^- '^- Demarest. 

To the Honorable President and Delegates of the Free United States of Ameriea in Con- 
gress Assembled. 

Gentletnen: A Memorial and Petition of a number of Inhabitants of Kentuckey 
Settlement of the Low Dutch reformed Church Persuasion in behalf of themselves and 
other intended Settlers was brought to me by one of those Petitioners desiring me in 
the Name of the rest to give a Testimonial of their Character to the Honourable Con- 
gress, because I was Personally acquainted with them. Some have lived amongst us 
and belonged to my Congregations. They were a Plain, honest, penceble. Sober and 
Industrious People remarkable for Agriculture, and by Current reports we have of them 
they are all hearty friends to our Glorious Revolution and the Honourable Congress. 
Gentlemen, I remain with due Respect, Your Most Humble Serv't, 
J. M. Van Harlingen, 
Minister of the Gospel at Soiirland and A'ew Shenniek. 

To the Honourable President and Delegates of the Free United States of America in Con- 
gress Assembled: 

The Memorial and Petition' of a number of Inhabitants of Kentuckey Settlement of 
the Low Dutch reformed Church persuasion in behalf of themselves and intended settlers. 
Humbly Sheweth, 

That in the Spring of the Year 1780, they moved to Kentuckey with their families 
and effects with a view and expectation to procure a Tract of Land to Enable them to 
settle together in a body for the convenience of civil Society and propagating the 
Gospel in their known (own?) language ; when they arrived there, to their sorrow and dis- 
appointment they were, thro' the dangcrousness of the times by a cruel Savage Enemy, 
oblidged to settle in Stations or Forts in such places where there was the most 
appearance of safety; notwithstanding all their precaution numbers of them suffered 
greatly in their property, several killed and others captivated by the Enemy, living in 
such distressed confined way, alway in danger, frequently on Military duty, it was 
impossible for them to do more than barely support their families with the necessaries 
of life, by which means they arc much reduced ; and what adds more to their dis- 
appointment and affliction is that, contrary to their cxpections, before their arrival 
and since, the most or all the Tillable Land has been located and monopolised by 
persons that had the advantage of your Memorialists, by being acquainted with the 
country. And your Memorialists, being strangers and confined as aforesaid, and being 
so reduced, are rendered unable to purchase Land at the advanced price, and especially 
in a body conveniently together agreeable to their wishes. Whereas, Providence has 
been pleased to prosper and support the virtuous resistence of the United St.ites in the 
glorious Cause of Liberty, which has enabled them to oljlain an Honorable Peace 
wherebv they have obtained a large extent of unappropriated Territory. And whereas 
it is currently and repeatedly reported amongst us that Congress has broke or made 
void Virginia's right or claim to Land in Kentuckey Settlement. 

Your Petitioners therefore humbly pray (in behalf of themselves and other intended 
settlers of that persuasion) the Honourable Congress would intlulge them with a grant 
of a Tract or Territorv of Land in Kentuckey settlement, if the Virginia claim thereto 
should be made void, or otherwise in the late ceedeil i.inu on uie isuiuiwcbi sjue ui liie 
Ohio river, whereto there is not any prior legal claim, to enable them to settle in a 
body together, on such reasonable terms as Congress in their wisdom and prudence 
shall see just and reasonable, they complying with, and pLi forming all reasoniblc con- 
ditions required, to enable them to put their intended plan and purpose in execution, 
they having principally in view the Glory of God, the promotion of Civil and religious 
society. Educating and instructing their rasing generation in the principals of religion 
and morality. Hoping the Honmble Congress will give all due encouragement to 
such a laudable undertaking; The Premisses duly coiisulrnd. Your Petitioners as in 
duty bound shall ever pray, &c.

To THE ClASSIS of NEW BRUNSWICK. 



Beloved in the Lord, Grace, 
Peace and Mercy —Amen. 

Having at this time made a call for a minister of our Lou Dutch Reformed Church, 
by the consent of our Low Dutch Society at Salt River, Mercer County, in the State of 
Kentucky, we hope it may have its desired effect. Therefore we do in the name of our 
Lord Jesus desire of you, our Rev. Classis, to aid and assist us with all possible speed. 

It is further the sincere wish and prayer of us that in case you could not send us a 
minister agreeable to our wish — that is, one that can preach both English and Dutch, 
that we then have a speedy supply, either in the Dutch or i'.nglish language, to estab- 
lish a consistory, to ])reacb, to baptize, etc., as there are at present upwards of 40 
children to be baptized. And further, as we are like to be a scattered people, we hope 
a speedy remedy may take place, so that our desires are great, our case is distressing, 
our church atTairs and religion in many respects lamentable. Though we have through 
the blessing of God yet so far united, and as it is the desire of our Society to send us a 
minister who can preach both languages, we hope we shall lie blessed with such a man, 
and if not to be expected in a short time, then we pray for a supply as above mentioned, 
and we, the subscribers, shall reward him well for his cost ami trouble; and once more 
we crave a speedy remedy, as we have reason to fear that wc will soon be scattered — 
which we hope God will forbid. 

our Rev. Classis may aid and assist us as soon as possible, that our Society may be 
established and religion flourish in this and all other pl.tcrs, is the sincere «ish and 
prayer of us, the subscribers, who being chosen .is tin; voire of the people. 

Given from under our hands this 13th of August, in the year of our Lord, 1795.

Reverend Sir: On mniot ul a c. rtiin minister of our Reformed Low Dutch 
Church, together with our lainenlrd cin iim^tances in the cause why we, your humble 
petitioners, take the freedom i.i i. (|u.iini you with our present calamities, which we 
hope, kind sir, you will pardon when you have examined your suppliant's petition. 

We arc, reverend sir, at present iji a precarious situation in regard to church 
affairs, and have been so for a number of years past. We are surrounded by a number 
of societies who are of different confis-.ion-;. We are a numerous people who are desti- 
tute of divine ser\-ice. We .ire a pec.plc who sc.ircely know the difference between our 
and other church coiistitutioiis, uhitli m.ikis it difficult to keep tliem united. We arc 
so situated that we can li.ne sniJiily il .ilmost any time on making application, which 
we allow is dangerous, as ue sli.dl nuiiiioii lierrafter. We are a people who have the 
same feeling and possess tin- s.mi. (l.;;r. c nf ^miliition as these, our neighbors. We are 
hurt that there is no more dom l.n ii-.; .n- vii,|n(_t that it is caused among ourselves by 
men who formerly have inliin.ii.d lli.ii ue urn- not like to become a church or nation; 
we are satisfied and must re.ison.ilih suppo-.e that all future efforts will be of no effect 
unless a speedy remedy takes jjiai e. 

Therefore we pray you, in tht. name of Him who has all power to will and to do, 
that you will assist us if in your power. With submission we crave your aid and as- 
sistance with all possilile speed. We have sent a call to the Rev. Classis, of New 
Brunswick, likewise a letter of evpustiiLition, and wrote to some others of the clergy, 
which we hope may have the desin-d (iVcrt. If not, we are a scattered people, as there 
are numbers among us at pre^.enl llvit ■-,i\ «e cannot wait longer — our children should 
and must be baptized, bcsidis. ;^rc.u numbers that have been baptized by parents to 
whom it was a matter of indinirin'i- li\ uIkuu it was done. Others have the boldness 
to say that, when there is no re:_;.n(l m .iti- iiiion paid to us, why should we wait longer? 
Others say: our neighboring sm aiie-,, lud seme who are much inferior to us, are great 
care taken of, such as missinn.n i. - ~riii .in,l rluirehes established, etc., — and we, who 
are superior, there is nolhiiv^r ilm,,- (,,r u-. i )iir neighboring clergy have made several 
offers, and have sometimes iMe.i'iicd, ulnch only serves to weaken us and break the 
bond of unity; but wonder Imw «.■ Ii,i\e united as long as we have — we may view it as 
something almost supernatural. 

Therefore, Rev. Sir, we li.ive lhou;;ht it a hity incumbent on us to inform you 
with our present circumstam es, to en.ilile you to m a just idea about us; and further, 
ler nations on account of persevering and ad- 
■tc, and not as much as a supply. 
ns we endure ; but our nation here in general 
tlieiiibelves to be superior to a number of others, 
n to be able to make up 500 dollars yearly as 

nd if well united might do more, hut we hope 
ny longer without a minister. This much for 
I e it in your power to help us, to let no means

239. PAULUS' HAN TA, married in New York, June 5, 1756, F'rancyntje MJn- 
thorn, daughter of Thilip Minthorn, who was born January 22, 1738. He was admit- 
ted a freeman in New York in 1765. He was a carpenter and builder, and his name 
appears frequently in the records of the Register's office in New York, in connection 
with the transfers of real est.ite. His father-in-law, Philip Minthorn, owned a farm of 
over one hundred acres, east side of the Bowery, extending from about First Street, 
north, t9 the Stuyvesaiit farm, and easterly to the East River. Oct. 16, 1776, Paulus 
lianta was among the Loyalists who signed the address to General Howe, then in com- 
mand of the liritish troops in New York. After the death of Philip Minthorn his farm 
was divided among his nine children, by lot, the map showing the division being re- 
corded in the Rcgistei's office in Liber 50, folio 370. An advertisement in the AVw 
York Weekly Gazelte, in 176.S, reads as follows: 

For Sale, a house and lot in IJalteau.x Street. Also, a lot of ground in the mead- 
ows, facing Captain Smith's. Apply to Paulus Banta, in the Bowery. 

In March, 1775, in Rivint^ston's Gtizetle, appeared the following advertisement of 

To be soKl, a lot of j;r(iund cont.iining about 8 acres; one acre and three-quarters 
in salt meadow, being in the " t)ut W.ird" of this city, in the Bowery Lane, whereon is 
a good dwelling house and l.virn, iS:c. 

A week later another notice of a sale appeared of a house in " Dirick Dye's Street, 
.ipply to Paulus ll.intaal the s.nd house." 

Thomas V . Devoc, in hi^ .M.'nket Book, page 331, makes the following mention of 

1772, at theconui of Bro.ulw.iy and Maiden Lane, he says: 

One of the princip.d muhet wonjcn, who daily attended at this market both win- 
w.i, Mr,. I'l.ui. es lianta (usually known as "Aunt Frankey"!, one of 
llnhp Mniihorne :inil a sister of Mangle Minthorne. (Mangle Min-

Each market day found "Aunt Frankcy" ready for an early start, with her produce 
placed in her market-cart over night, and before daylight next morning she was on her 
way down the Bowery road, and into this market, ready to serve the then early risers, 
who were anxious to get the choice. She raised a large family, two of whom were 
daughters whom she taught the same accomplishments, or rather habits of industry, so 
peculiar to those early days. No doubt one of these daughters even exceeded the 
mother, as will be perceived in a sketch of her history in the Union Market (sec No. 
637); the other is also noticed in the Centre Market (sec No. 638). 

Paulus Banta died Oct. 18, 1791, his widow surviving him nearly thirty years, and 
dying March 18, 1821.

in 1765. October 12, 1764, he bought a house and lot on Partition Street, now Fulton

bearing date 2d February, 1779. lie served uiulcr l.ieiit.-Col. Abraiii \'aii lUiskirk in 
an engagement at "Hoeburk" (Hol)oken) near I'auliis Hook, N.J.,uliere, in March 
23, 1779, he received a wound by a musket ball in the knee, which permanently disabled 
him, rendering him a cripple for the remainder of his life. In Octoljcr, 1787, he was 
living in Shelbourne, Nova Scotia. In a memoiial adih-csscd Ijy him to the High 
Honorable Lord Cathcart, dated London, Septcmljcr 12, 1788, appealing to the Cruwn 
for aid, he recapitulated some of his services, as follows: 

During the command of his Excellency Sir Henry Clinton, at New York, 1 was 
frequently employed in procuring intelligence, and was llie person who was sent into 
Bergen County, N. J., for the express purpose of taking llie infamous Bronwer, who 
had murdered Captain John Richard, which I effected and brought him into New York. 
That among other services I was sent into New Jersey to intercept the rebel mail, in 
which. I was disappointed, but at great risk I took the rebel General Ward Munter, 
.Muster-General to the rebel army, etc., Colonel Bradford, and seized the general's 
papers. When I returned to New York, I delivered the papers to your Lordship per- 
sonally one morning early, and if your Lordship can rcciillect, 1 requested to have two 
boats from one of the king's ships lying in the North river, in order to take off my 
party, with the prisoners there in the woods concealed. That your Lordship was 
pleased to inform me the papers which I had brought had given Sir Henry the 
utmost satisfaction. * * « » » i beg leave to inform your Lordship that at the 
evacuation of New York I went to Nova Scotia, where 1 endeavored to settle my family; 
that in 17S6 1 was examined before the Commission for American Claims, Colonel 
Dundas and Jeremiah Pemberton, Esq., who were pleased to give me the following cer- 
tificate (certificate enclosed), with which I have now cnnie In l.i.iirlnn, in order to petition 
for the half pay of a lieutenant, or such militar) compcn-^itMin a^ has been allowed to 
others in the like predicament with myself. I thcrelurr luiinbls licg leave to request 
your Lordshifi will be so kind as to honor me with your lx rtilii .itc nf the activity and zeal 
I showed towards his Majesty's service in America, and of sucji particular matters as 
your Lordship may recollect, and your Lordship's recomu\endation in such manner as 
you shall think proper for the bounty and relief of Government, wliich will greatly 
relieve my distresses, as I am now reduced to extreme poverty and have nothing to 
depend upon in this country, where 1 am a strangir, to the gre.it inconvenience of my 
family in Nova Scotia, who, with myself, unless I succeed to th.it benevolence which 
has been extended to many of my fellow countrymen and siilTcrers, must inevit.iljly be 
involved in utter ruin and distress. I beg leave to mention to your Lordship that 
during the war I recruited 62 men for the corps commanded by Lieut. -Colonel Bayard 
and Lieut. -Colonel Buskirk, that I was sent to reconnoitre Fort Montgomery by Sir 
William- Howe, which I did to his Excellency's satisfiction, and was at the taking of it 
when I received two wounds. That I went as guiile to the Light Infantry, under the 
command of Colonel Abercrombie, to Tappan, where Washington's Light Horse were 
defeated; that being constantly employed on these kind of services was the sole reason 
of my not getting a Commission, to which I was entitkul by raising my quota of men 
of one of the new corps — all of which circumstances were proved to the satisfaction of 
the Commissioners at Halifax. 

Accompan> ing this memorial werj." testimonials from William I'ranklin, late Governor 
of Now lersev : from William Bavard, who refers to the f.ict that he remembers Weart [sic] 
Banta being on crutches for many months in New York, Iroiii the musket wound already 
mentioned (he mentions also that Wicrt I5anta had a large family to support); and 
from Lieut.Col. Abiam Van Buskirk, late N. J. X'ohmteers. That he was successful 
in obtaining recognition for his military services appears from the following bill of 
exchange, made by his widow, which also indicates tin

of the latter in Christopher Street, New York City, April 19, 1833, at the age of eighty- 
four years. She was buried in the family \ ault of the Mildeberger's in the church-yard 
of "St. Mark's in the Bowery." The children named below were baptized in the 
Lutheran Church in New York. (Ine child, w hose name does not appear in the records, 
was baptized at Paramus, February 27, 1769 — the parents' names given in this latter 

case are "Weart Banta and ICluabcth — ," and it is possible that these were others 

than the Wiert Banta now referred to. It is probable that other children were born, 
as the certificate of Col. Bayard mentions a "large family," but the church records 
during the war are missing.

please to understand that when Mr. Banta came forward with his heavenly call, Mr. 
Demaree said he also had a call. It was a-irecd on by the Society that they both 
might exhort, and go on as probationers and improve tlieir talents, and he who was the 
most approved of by the Society should go on to the Synod for approbation and 
license. Nevertheless, although Mr. Hanla was most approved of, our Society still 
thought it would not do, and expressed themselves to that import. Thus said, Mr. B. 
left them and joined the Baptists. 

In the letter on page 53, will be found another reference to this Mr. Albert Banta. 
Some time later he removed from Kentucky to I'reble County, O., where he died.

died May 25, 1812, in the Shaker Community. Three of the first four children named 
below were baptized at Conewago, Penn. He did not remove with his father and others 
to Kentucky. In the memorial already referred to he appears among the "Intend 
Frinds." On the records of York County, Penn., under date of May 8, 1790, appears a 
sale of three slaves by Garret Uorland to Samuel Banta. At what date he went to 
Kentucky does not appear. In March, 1807, he joined the Shakers at Pleasant Hill, 
Kentucky, and signed the Covenant at the first organization of the church among 
them. He left them April 24, 1827, at which time he was 74 years of age. A suit 
was brought by him to recover a farm which he had given to the society, which was 
decided against him in the Court of Appeals of Kentucky, in the Spring Term, May 
5, 1834. The facts stated in the opinion of the Court are of sufficient interest to be 
given in full :

GOSS AND BONTA (7^(l///.i7'WlI.llITE AND OTHERS, A SOCIETY OF SHAKERS. 

Appeal by plaintijfs fro}ii the Circuit Court 0/ Lincoln Co. 
Proceeding in Chancery in behalf of Goss and Bonta, two seceding members of 
the religious society called Shakers, ri.si<knt at Pleasant Hill, in .Mercer Co., for the 
purpose of obtaining a division of the pro|)crty belonging to the society, and of having 
their shares allotted to them, cither upon the principle of equality, as two of the cove- 
nant members, or according to the amount of properly each carried with him into the 
'-iiiieiy. The following is the substance of the " Covenant," or Articles of Association : 



Sixth Generation ; Ifeiiry* lloidrick'^ JfiHi/riik- J-'.pkt 



Preamble; The preamble recites that "all who come into membership do freely 
and voluntarily dedicate and devote themselves and all they possess to the service of 
God forever; and it being their faith that the union and relation of the church in one 
joint interest, is a situation the most acceptable to (jod, and productive of the greatest 
good of any state or situation attainable on earth," they therefore covenanted and 
agreed by these Articles : 

I. To gather themselves together and be constituted and formed in the order of 
a church. 

II. Creates an office of "trustee" or "agentship," and appoints three of the 
brethren thereto. 

III. New members allowed to come in and devote to the joint interest of the church 
all such property as they justly hold. "The joint interest of the church thus formed by 
the free will offerings of the members, respectively, shall be possessed and held by the 
whole body jointly, as their natural and religious right." Every member of the church 
to enjoy equal privileges in the use of the church property, " according to their order, 
and as every one has need, without any difference being made on account of what any 
one has brought in." It is the duty of all the members to support and maintain the 
joint interest of the church, according to their several abilities as members, for the good 
of the whole. 

IV. Provides that the trustees shall take and hold the property in perpetual suc- 
cession. In case of vacancy in the trusteeship, successor to be appointed. 

V. "As the whole end and design of our thus uniting in church relation is to 
receive and diffuse the manifold gifts of God, to the mutual happiness of each other, as 
brethren and sisters in the Gospel, and for the relief of the poor, the widow and the 
fatherless," the members covenant and agree to give up all their prnperty to the church, 
for charitable uses, etc., and relinquish all claim upon the society, or its members, for 
property contributed or services rendered. 

He/d, TJiat the third Article precluded a division of the effects according to what 
the members brought in. 

It was equally clear to the court that upon the whole covenant the intent was that 
the whole property and labor of each shall be devoted to the "church," as a quasi- 
corporation, for charitable purposes, the support of members, etc., forever. The ques- 
tion was whether such a covenant was valid in law. As to this it was 

HeM, That the use was not void as a superstition ; that the trust being a "char- 
itable trust," it was not void for indefinitencss; that it w.as not void as violating the rule 
against perpetuities, as this rule does not apply to charitable trusts and uses. 

(Opinion of the court given by Judge Nicholas -Judge Underwood dissenting.) 

In the application for a pension on file in the Bureau of Pensions appears the 
following: 

Samuel Banta, 1776. In May, 1833, he was residing in ;\Iercer County, aged 80 
years, where he had lived for more than forty years. 

He entered the service in December, 1776, at \o\k Coimty, Penns\lvania, under 
Captain Van Arsdale, marched to Philadelphia; from there, in ten or twelve days, he 
was ordered to Trenton, N. J., and when about eight miles from I'liiladeljihia they met 
some Hessian prisoners who had been taken at the h.iltle of Tixnton (December 26, 
1776). He joined the army of General Putnam, whose head-quarlers were at Princeton, 
N. ]., -It wblrh ^Urr. nnd nt Kip'r^ton he was st:itii.nrd as "uard ml the lines, and w.as

occupying New Brunswick.

490. JOHN 5 BANTA married Polly Kikcr, d.ui-litcr ..f Abraham Rikcr, who 
was born in New Jersey, January 29, 1760, and died Marcli 7, i8j8. During the Revo- 
lutionary War he was a drummer in Captain Hui;h Campbell's Company of the Second 
Battalion of York County, Pennsylvania, commanded by Col. Robert Mc Pherson, 
and did duty at Perth Amboy, N. J., in 1776. He removed with his father to Ken- 
tucky, and was one of those who purchased the "Low Dutch Tract" already referred 
to. He was one of the first to unite with tlie Shakers in Kentucky, who held their first, 
meeting at his house. A brief statement of the origin of Shakerism in Kentucky may 
be of interest: 

In the year 1800 began that e.xtraordinary movement known as the "Kentucky 
Revival," during the progress of which religious meetings were held attended by as 
many as twenty thousand persons at one time, the meetings being continued day and 
night for several days. The most singular manifestations characterized these meetings. 
Boys and girls of twelve years of age exhorted with wonderful eloquence and power, 
and many of the worshippers were so affected that they shouted and leaped for joy, 
while others fell upon the ground " like those who are shot in battle," and lay for hours 
as in a trance. A history of the time (the Kentucky Revival, by Richard Mc Nemar, 
p. 24,) says iof one of the meetings: "On this occasion no sex nor color, class nor 
description, were exempted from the pervading influence of the Spirit; even from the 
age of eight months (!) to sixty years, there were evident svibjects of this marvellous 
operation." .As an outgrowth of this awakening, Shakerism hatl its rise in Kentucky. 
A delegation from the Community at New Lebanon, N. Y., visited the State and found 
a hospitable reception at the house of John H,inta, who was one of the first to embrace 
their teachings. The work just quoted says (p. 85), "The same faith produced by the 
preparatory work of God, began also to break out at Kagle Creek, some time in the 
sixth month; which gave occasion to the testimony being opened there. A few at first 
embraced it with full purpose of soul, as the only way of Cod. Through the faith and 
special light of Matthew Houston, Samuel Henry, John lionta, Llisha Thomas, &c., 
the testimony entered and was received on the ^outli side of Kentucky (river), about the 
middle of the eighth month, and continued to spread until it embraced as many as 
were willing to embrace it in Mercer, Shelby, I'aint-lick and Long-lick. In each of 
which places there are a number of families who liave denied ungodliness and worldly 
lusts, taken up their cross, live together in the unity of tlie Spirit and bond of peace, 
and while with open eyes they are travelling from ili.itli into life, they shine as lights 
in the world." 

The Shaker records at Pleasant Hill, Kentucky , m:ike this mention of John Banta: 
"Believed in August, 1805. Removed to Pleasant 1 1111 in December, 1807. Removed 
to .^outh Onion, Logan Uouiiiy, ls.y. ^oue 01 tin; Ki.uieliv.3 01 llie .)iiaivi.i cliiin.li), j^ui- 
haps in l8fl, before the church was organized in Ple.isant Hill. Died at South Union, 
in the latter part of 1815, or the beginning of 1816." He g.cve ;i very valuable farm to 
the Shakers at the time he united with them in 1807.

492. DANIEL' BANTA married Anna Sluick, widow of Peter Durie, who was 
born Nov. 2, 1759, and died Juno 10, 1829. He was known as Captain Dan. In the 
account by G. W. Demaree in the Shelby Couraul, Shelbyvillc, Ky., 1873. ciiiolcd on 
p. 51, reference is made to Captain Dan and some of his brothers. We copy further 
extracts from? the same paper, May 15 and 22, 1S73. Tlie incident in reference to 
Mrs. Annie Durie is also mentioned in Historical .Sketches of Kentucky, by Lewis 
Collins, p. 422: 

Heart-rending Trial of Mus. ,\nna Banta. 

This famous woman was first married to S. (I'eter, Jr. See Collins' History of 
Kentucky, page 422) Duree, in the State of Virjjinia, in the year 1771, and remained 
in that State till 1777-8, when Durec and his wife joined a small company of emigrants 
and "struck" for the territory — Kentucky — and landed safely at a place then called 
Lime Stone, now Ma\sville, Mason County. Remaining here a short time, they broke 
ground for a settlement about eight miles from the fort. Having made the necessary 
preparations, Duree, his wife and three children, and an unmarried sister and two 
young brothers of his wife, attended by a small guard, went ahead of the other families 
to build a cabin. As soon as they reached the location selected they went to work, and 
at the end of three days had a cabin up and finished, which was to answer for dwelling- 
house and fort. The guard now returned to Lime Stone to conduct out the other 
families. On the fourth morning Duree and his two brothers-in-law went a short dis- 
tance from the house to cut a block to make a mortar to "bruise" their corn in, and 
were attacked by the savages; at the first fire one of the young men was killed on the 
spot, and Durec himself received a ball through his chest, inflicting a mortal wound, 
notwithstanding he ran to the cabin door before he fell. The other young man was 
cut off from the cabin by a fleet-footed Indian and tomahawked. Duree's sister, hear- 
ing the fuss, ran to the door and w.-is shot dead. Duree's wife saw the whole tragedy 
through a port hole, with her three little children at her side. The Indians, either be- 
coming alarmed at something or supposing they had killed all the "pale faces," dis- 
appeared without breaking into the cabin. Duree's wife dragged her dying husband 
into the house and used every effort in her power to stop the blood which was flowing 
copiously from the wound; every other remedy failing, she literally corked the artifice 
of the wound with her handkerchief. Duree revived sufficiently to entreat his wife to 
take the children and flee to the fort, telling her that he was bound to die and that she 
could be of no further service to him. As the poor woman stood gazing at her dying 
husband, surrounded by death on every side, her three little children clinging to her, 
and he pointing to the door and uttering with feeble voice : "Save yourself and children, 
go, go!"— the conflict was short but terrible— the awful decision was made. Now let 
us drop the curtain while the sad parting takes place, while the faithful wife turns her 
back on her dying husband forever — not for her own life, but for her children. Having 
made up her mind to try to reach the fort, she mounted one child on her shoulders, 
taking another in her arms and the third at her side, vwis soon flying with all possible 
speed along the blazed way towards Lime Stone, distance about eight miles. A blind- 
ing storm of rain and sleet setting in, she soon lo>t the trace and wandered in the 
trackless wilderness till late in the evening, when she again discovered the blazed track, 
and although she had traveled all day she found herself iiot more than a mile from the 
bloody scene trom which she was neeing. .~>lie n.ui k""'^ "^"^ •> siiui l uiai-uiLC, iiounci, 
when she met the other families coming out to join them, and told them the sad story. 
While they were parleying over what w.is best to be done the Inilians raised the war 
whoop in the distance. It appears they weie on ih. ir.uk of Dune's uife, and in a few 
minutes more she would have been murdered with her helpless b.du',, without mercy. 
The men saw the situation at a glance; to make a stand there in the wilderness with 
the women and children was out of the question, heme they i ul their packs from the 
horses and let them fall to the ground, and mounting the women and children, the race 
b.ick to the fort commenced in good earnest ; the horses, maddened by the li.rce yells 
of the redskins, went tearing through the th:. k undrrgrowlh, j.uerating the lower

limbs of tlioir riders Ixidly, IkskI. , uliicli no .iLcidcnts oc(,iii-rcd, and tlioy all reached 
the fort safely. The next morning they bent out a force suffieicntly stronj; to drive 
back the Indians and bury their de.ul. 

A few years afterwards the bi.ue and somewhat reckless Capt. Dan Banta met the 
widow Durec; having heard of lui l.nne, she exactly suited him. It is enough to say 
he courted and married her, an. I lu.i\ely did -.he stand by him while he played a con- 
spicuous part in reclaiming Slielb\ County from tlic wildncss of nature. I^aniel Banta 
died Dec. 15, 1827.

born May 14, I7''>3, and died 1829. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, and 
while tighling in New Jersey was wounded in the leg. In 1786 he moved to Kentucky, 
and in 1794 removed lo Ohio, locating three and a half miles east of Lebanon, Warren 
County. In 17S8 he was in the Indian wars, and stationed at a block house on the 
liresent sit<- of I Mil inn iii. IiiiIh .ipplication for a pension on file in the Bureau ol 
Tensions, Washin-inn, ippe.ir-, the following statement: 



sixth Generation; Albert^ Hcndrick''^ lie mine k'- Epke. 



Daniel Banta was born 1762 in Bergen County, New Jersey, and in October, 1832, 
he was residing in Warren County, Ohio. 

In the Fall of 1777 a British force was near New Bridge, Bergen County, N. J., and 
he volunteered to watch their movements, to prevent their foraging through the sur- 
rounding country ; in scouting, and in guarding provisions and war stores for the use 
of the Continental army. 

In 1778 he served one month with Capt. Christie (see No. 6i6) at a point in the 
road to (Tloucester (Closter?) about five miles from New Bridge, where he was taken pris- 
oner and carried to New York City. While in the presence of some Tories, one of 
whom aspersed the character of his father, he promptly resented it and was himself 
assaulted by them. In about a week he was exchanged and returned to his company. 

He continued from time to time in similar service until early in 1 781, when he 
enlisted at Hackensack for one year, marched under Col. Dye to Fort Lee, on the 
Hudson River, which the Americans captured — the enemy making their escape. In 
the attack on the fort he received a wound from a ball which passed through both 
thighs, rendering him unable to help himself until September, and in October he joined 
his company at Hackensack. 

His services prior to 1781 indicate a service in the classified militia, a sort of reserve 
for alternate duty on alarm, patroling a prescribed district, guarding the lines, &c. 

In 1834, under the act of Congress then recently passed, he received a pension of 
$80 a year for his services, which he drew until the date of his death, .September, 1837.

21, 1784. He married again, Hyla (Helen) V.in Sys, Septcinber 9, 1786, at the True 
Reformed Church of Hackcnsack, of which he w.is a nienilx-r. .She was born October 
10, 1769, and died December 21, 1834. He died February 17, 1S35. 

In an application for a pension on file in the Bureau of Pensions, Washington, 
appears the following statement concerning ;\brain I'.anta: 

He was born January 22, 1762, one mile above H.u konsack, I'.ergcn County, where 
he continued to reside until 1779 "hen his father, ha\ing bien much annoyed and 
injured by the British and Tories, proposed to e.\chan;;e his farm in Hackcnsack witli 
Cornelius Lozier — a Tory — for his farm al Par.inuis, .mil to furnish a su1)stitute for the 
latter's two sons during the war (named John and David). His fallur moved witli his 
family to Paramus, where he lived three years; and .Mir.iham servi-d as a substitute for 
the two sons of Lozier, besides performing the milit.ir\ duty for uhich he was liable 
when sixteen years old. In 1819 he removed to New ^'ork City, wluie he was residing 
in October, 1832. 

Ill .May or June, 1770, ius biuiliei juhh 'i^. (.i>..i^>'. ... ,''j.- ;.' '., J,.,vl) , ^l..,.'';, .1. 

He took his place under Capt. Beard in the " Flying Camp" wliirh w.is stalioned imme- 
diately below Bergen town, on the east side of Newark Bay. Ills ne,<it sen'ice, in 1776, 
was as a substitute fo.- his brother John, under Capt. .Stagg of I lacKen-.u k, at the time 
the enemy were moving inland from New N'ork City (which w.is occupied by them Sop- 
teinber 15, 1776) towards Fort Washington, to assist in building h'ort I.ce in New 
Jersey, directly opposite to the former Fort (which was captured b) the* British Novem- 
ber 16, 1776, immediately followed by the evacuation of Fort I.ce and retreat of C.en. 
W.ishington through New Jersey to Trenton, Ironi theiici- crossing the Delaware river 
into Pennsylvania). 



Sixth Gninalion ; l>avi.n WiiTf^ Wierl'^ Epkc 



In 1778 he served with Cnpl. Outn.Uc 1, uho was stationed at Aqiiackonock, j;uard- 
ing the lines, watcliin.L; to coiintcr.Kl ihc iiiovLiiient of tlic enemy near New Bridge and 
Srhiawlenburg, seeking opporliinilieb lor lura-ing incursions, and to attack the Fort on 
I5rouer's Hill, now New liridge. His coin|>any marched within three or four hundred 
yards when the enemy Hred cannon upon them while they were going into the Fort, 
and Gen. Wayne, on account of the inecpiality of his force, retreated to where his 
brigade remained three or fnur weeks. During the latter period he "was out" with 
scouting parties around Ilackensack. 

The British, commanded by Col. Boskirk, a refugee, came from New York City or 
from Hoboken in the night tn llopperstonn, about two miles from the residence of 
Banta, and burnt it, when all the militia including himself " turned out" to attack 
them, but were not organiz.'d under any captain, and pursued them to Fort Lee, killing 
some of them. The enemy were called "green coats" (from the color of the dress 
adopted by the refugees and Tories around Xew York City). 

He was stationed (year not recollected) under Capt. Romaine at the English 
Neighborhood, and a Capt. Bowman arrived with a company of Light Infantry, to whom 
Banta was detailed as a pilot to conduct him through the place to the lower part of the 
country. Col. Boskirk had the night before lirought some troops from Hoboken up to 
near the English Neighborhood, botli officers being ignorant of the proximity of the 
other. Capt. Bouinan had proceeded luit a short distance when he fell upon the hostile 
party and drove them back to Hoboken. During the same year he again acted as 
pilot to the same officer, at the same place, going as far as Bergen without meeting 
the enemy; then he marched to Bull's Ferry and the ne.xt day retreated to Liberty 
Pole. 

Under Capt. Blanch he "was out" in pursuit of a body of refugees who came from 
New York City and burnt Chester, taking all the cattle, which were recaptured. During 
the war he served as a substitute under Captains Demarest at Newbridge, Ward at 
Schrawlcnburgh, Komainc at Liberty Pole and English Neighborhood, Huylcr at 
Chester, Church and Harrington. He could not recollect the years in all cases, or the 
duration of the service. 

The character of the service appears like much of that of the New Jersey militia 
which was classitied for alternate duty as the emergency required; viz: guarding the 
lines, scouting, patrolling the country to protect the inhabitants from incursions, 
foraging parties, etc. The duty sometimes was necessary for each class in alternate 
months.

637. CAIHARIXE' I'.ANTA married John Barr. He was a butcher in the 
Old Fly Af.irket, New York, and lived on the south-east corner of Grand Street and the 
Bowery. He dieil of yellow fever in 1798. His widow kept a vegetable stand in Collect 
Market, when thai market was opened in i8ro; in 1817 its name was changed to Cen- 
tre ^^arket. In 1850 she removed to Union Market in E.ast Houston Street, and 
continued there until her ilc.ith, October ji, 1858. 

Devoe's Maik.t Hook, a lii,lory "f the Markets of New York City, speaks as 
follows of .Mr. and Mrs. Barr: 



Si.xt/t Gc,nni/i,»! ; I'aiiliiy'' Ilni.liiik-^ Hi.ir'F./ih'A 115 

Yet living' (1858) and lu-.uly .inn (y vo.irs ui --ny. is llio aclivc, iiUrlli:-;ont widow of 
one of the victims cf l/yS, v.\v luM iiu- tlie fdlloujii;^ fails. Slie said lii-r luislxand, 
John Barr, was a butcher in ihr Old ||y Markel, where he took tlie yellow fever. 
He came home to his residence, tlun at ihc soiilh-east corner of the Bowery Lane and 
Grand Street, and with the as>,isl;inr;e ..f his wife, dismounted from his horse— no carts 
being aUowed after a certain lime around the markets, — when his relativis and friends 
deserted him, all except his affectionate uife, and she for two days and nights was at 
the bedside alone with her, at times, diran^jed husband; and uhen in his senses, his 
wishes were, if he died, that he mi-ht not be taken bv l\ukri; in his horrid dcad-iiirt, 
to "Potter's Field." His faithful uife promised he should not, if she lived. The 
humane Vogcl heard of his sickness through the doctor (U/idii/ii//, she thought he 
was a doctor), and hurried there lo find that the husband was speechless and the wife 
worn out. He stayed and did all ihal man could do, but the poor distracted wife knew 
he could not live, and she ku^ u .,!mi tli.it no other help could be obtained; she pre- 
pared his windiiig-shcci, that he i'iiL;ht have the christian burial she had promised 
him. 

He died, and Vogcl, having pre\ iously procured a coffin, laid him out ; then, before 
the expected dead-cart came along for the body, he harnessed the dead man's favorite 
horse before his butcher carl, to be at last used as his hearse, and in this he conveyed 
the body, followed by one, the chief mourner, to the family burial ground in the Dutch 
Reformed church-yard, at the corn.r of Eldridge and Houston Streets, where he wished 
it to lie. There the noble-lu:ai ted \'ogcl dug the gr.ive, and the faithful wife redeemed 
the last promise made to her once itrcinionate and her ordy husband. 

In an account of Union Maikrt, |>age 584, there is this following reference to 
Mrs. Barr: 

Among these new faces heie was one, a moht remarkable character, prc\iously 
noticed in the "Old Fly Market," in connection with her husband, John Barr, wliodied 
of yellow fever in the year 1798. 

"Aunt Katy Barr" was knosui lo many of our old citizens for the last half century, 
first, as an occupant of the "Collect Market," when that first opened for business in 
1810, in which she sold her \cect;;non for seven years, or until the occupants were 
transferred into the "Centre Maikit" in 1817, where 1, «hile going with my Dtothcr to 
this market, became acquainted! v.iili her and her sister, ".Aunt Fanny Watson," both 
market-women, or hucksters, whom I thought in my boyhood stood in that relative 
relation to me and everybody else \^lH) aildressed these remarkable women. I had lost 
sight of and forgotten her from about 1825 to 1857, when I heard of the "old market 
woman" in the "Union Market," \vho-e recollections of the past were most wonderful; 
and when I visited her, and fust heartl the sound of her voice and cpiick answers, it 
told me it was the same "Aunt Kaly I'.arr." 'i'hen, although almost ninety years old, 
she recollected my iiiolhcr and hi 1 "wild boys." She had stood in the "Centre 
Market " from its first opening. »•*»»• About the year 1S35 she removed 
into one of her houses in Second Street, near Avenue C, with her married daughter 
(her only child), which created a longer distance to travel at \m earlier hour in the 
morning. She was, hov.ever, among the first in the market, .ilways ready for business; 
and on Saturday nights after a long, tnesome day's work, sonu'limes as late as twelve 
o'clock found her traveling through deep snows anil cold storms towards her welcome 
home. This active life she continm il 110 to iSi;n. (vlvn slm in cnrrn\<- ti--oM r.~.„ ti. 
oia assocuitions m tlic Centre Mark^i .md entered .again upon new ones in this (Union) 
Market. Here she passed eight ye.ir> in her business, aiul on Saturday night, the 17th 
of October, 1S58, she left here for the la>i time, as ■du-, after a short illness of only four 
. days, expired, and her body was bonie lo that final rciling-place where she, just sixty 
years before, had followed lier only liu->liand, being 1 \\\U- for a few short months and a 
widow of j/.r/yji-rtri, always treasuring in her memoi) lu r )oung and loving husbanil.

638. FRANCYN'TJi; '■ (Fanny) BANTA married Robert Watson, May 10, 1800. 
She had a staiul in Centre Market, where she was known as "Aunt Fanny." Uevoc's 
Market Book, pajje 461, says concerning her: 

Among the other occupants removed from the "Collect Market" into this were two 
remarkable sisters, daujjhliTs of Mrs. Frances Banta (noticed in the "Oswego Market"), 
who early taught tlieni to know how to earn a livelihood, instead of not lo know lunu, 
as is the fashion ol the present day. They were early in life left widows, with families 
to support on small incdnies; and although they had wealthy relatives, they felt not 
like receiving dependent charity, but rather preferred to call their early teachings into 
action, and earn an inde|iendent livelihood. 

A sketch of the life of one of the daughters will be found in the "Union Market," 
and the other, Mrs. Fann)- Watson, or rather Aunt Fanny, was long known in this 
market, in fact, until her death, which occurred in 1841. She was a large, well-formed, 
as well as a well-infonned u-oman, very sprightly, quick, and a general favorite here, 
where she spent many jears in accumulating a property, of which a part was unfor- 
tunately destroyed b)- lire. She, liowever, succeeded in bringing up her family in such 
a manner as to give her pleasure; and when she died, she left a snug property and a 
good name for industry, intelligence, and honesty.

1521. REV. HENRY D.6 BANTA married his cousin, '^« Eleanor Van Arsdale.s 
June 23, 1803. He was born in Kentucky, and removed across the Ohio into Switzer- 
land County, Indiana, prior to the War of 1812. He cnUsted, and served from April 
to August, 1813, as a ranger under Captain W. Dunn. He was a farmer. For many 
years he officiated as a minister of the Baptist denomination — "old school" — declining 
all pay for his services. He died Jan. 21, 1867. His widow survived him more than 
twelve years, dying April 22, 1879. A sketch of his life, and that of his wife, written 
by his son, was published in a local paper in 1878; it is given in full, and is a quaint 
narrative of the pioneer life in which so many of the Bantas participated : 
AN OLD PIONEER. 

MRS. ELEANOR BANTA — A BRIEF SKETCH OF HER LIFE — NARROW ESCAPE FROM THE 
INDIANS — HARD TIMES — REV. HENRY D. BANTA, ONE OF THE EARLY 
PIONEER PREACHERS OF SWITZERLAND COUNTY — INTER- 
ESTING ALLUSIONS TO EARLY TIMES. 

Vevay, Ind., May 4th, 1878. 

Editor "Rez'eille" : — Having some time since promised you that I would give you 
a short history of the life of one of the oldest settlers of this county, viz., that of my 
mother, Eleanor Banta, 1 therefore proceed to redeem that promise, and as much as 
possible will give it in her own language. 

She was born in Ketcham Station, or Fort, in Shelby Co., Ky., May 4th, 1786, 
and of course is 92 years old to-day, this being her birthday, and therefore as suitable 
a time as any for such history. When she was nine days old the Indians drove her 
mother, with the other women in the Fort, six miles back to the nearest settlement at 
that time, and they had to retreat in the night for fear of being shot down or toma- 
hawked and scalped by the Indians, as she was afterwards informed by her parents. 
She resided in that section of the country until after her marriage. She married Henry 
D. Banta, and lived with him until his death, which occurred at the age of 81 years, 
they having lived together 64 years^ Many of your readers will recollect him as the 
old regular Baptist preacher. Being a regular Old School Baptist, he never did, or 
would, receive a salary I'or picucliiiig, bi.liv.wiiL, il U> l/o ..loi.^ ',u Jw m. \\c prc.-.chcd 
regularly, as health permitted, for 41 years and 6 months, both in this State and Ken- 
tucky. He was pastor of Four-mile Church in Kentucky for years, and pastor of the 
Baptist Church in Vevay for 7 years; was pastor of Brushy Fork, Grant's Creek and 
other churches — I know not how long. His membership was in Bethel Church, in 
Craig Township, for 41 years and 6 months, all of which time he was the regular pastor 
of the same up to the time of his death. He was buried in Bethel Cemetery. But I 
have left the history that I commenced writing, and have given part of that of another. 
I know, however, that your readers will pardon the digression, and I will return to the 
subject upon which I started out — that of the history of Fllcanor Banta. She says: 



Snienth Ccneration ; r)aniet'-> Henry'- HenJrick^ ffencirlck' Epke. 



'' My parents told me that the morning I was born one of my uncles was shot near 
the Fort, and the woods around the Fort was full of Indians. They were driven off, 
hortcver, and we had peace for a spell again. We remained in that section of the 
country until the year 1817, then moved to the State of Indiana, County of Switzerland, 
in Tlcasant Township, near or perhaps on the farm now known as the George Hotch- 
kiss farm. There we erected the first horse-mill in the settlement, which for many 
years was called tho Old Qutch Settlement. We had to pay $4 per bushel for salt 
then, and carry it in sacks on the backs of mules from the salt licks, or furnaces, as 
they sometimes called them in Kentucky, and we had to pay in proportion for many 
other things. Before we built the horse-mill we had to grind all of our corn on hand- 
mills. They were a very simply constructed affair. The hopper, as it was called, 
would be a portion of a trunk of a large tree, two or three feet in diameter and three or 
four feet high ; one end of this block would be chopped out or burned out deep enough 
to receive the mill-stones ; the bottom stone would be securely fastened in this hopper, 
and a small hole cut in the side of the hopper, just at the top of the bed stone, and a 
small spout attached to carry off the meal ; the top stone, or runner as you would call 
it now, had two holes in it, one in the center to receive the grain to be ground, the 
other near one side, in which was placed an upright pole, two or two and a half 
inches thick; the top end of the pole was placed into a timber or beam overhead for 
that purpose, and the operator would take hold of this pole and turn it round, much 
the same as the apothecary would his pestle in a medicine mortar, turning with one 
hand and feeding the mill with the other at the same time. Many and many times I 
have ground my meal on the hand-rnill, and that was the way we got all our corn 
ground in those days, for we had no 'wheat then. If we had had wheat, we had no 
mills but the hand-mills to grind it on, and I think they would have made bad 
flour. 

" I recollect of hearing my parents tell that my uncle Samuel Dure and his brother 
and his brother's wife were out some little distance from the house, and two uncles were 
cutting a tree for the purpose of building a hand-mill, when they were surprised by the 
Indians and fired upon, and all three fell mortally wounded and died in a few minutes. 
Dear me, folks now-days know nothing about trouble and hard times, for the Indians 
would frequently come into the settlements of nights and kill the milch cows and cut 
out a slice or chunk from their hams, and leave the balance for an aggravation to the 
owners. Talk about hard times, you know nothing about it. After the Indians were 
driven from the country, so there was not so much danger, I used to take my little 
spinning-whccl and go many times of nights and spin flax and tow by the light of the 
brush heap fires that my husband was burning in the clearing. 

"In 1825 we moved from the Dutch Settlement to Craig Township. We bought 173 
acres of land from George Craig, one mile from the Ohio River, now known as the 
farms of the Widow Elizabeth Banta and Zachariah Cotton. There we remained until 
the year 1840, when we moved to Vevay, and remained in the vicinity of Vevay eight 
years; then moved to the neighborhood of Allensville, in Cotton Township, and re- 
m.ained there nine years, and then moved back to Craig Township, near Braytown, on 
the farm now occupied by Dallas F. Banta; remained there until the death of my 
husband. 

"I am now living with my son-in-law and daughter, Justus Thiebaud and Mary 
Thiebaud, on the Ohio River, three miles below Vevay. I live half of the time with 
my son ajid daughter-in-law, Jacob and Sarah Banta." 

She was the mother of thirteen children, and raised twelve of them to have 
families — one died at the age ot two years — leaving six guis and six buys. Now '•.\\K.i^ 
remain but six children, viz. ; Daniel, Jacob, Abraham, Mary Thiebaud, John W., and 
Eleanor Beach. She has had ninety-one grandchildren and eighty-one great grand- 
children. She reads well without glasses, having her second sight, but prefers glasses 
for steady reading. She says she can sew very well and knit just as good as ever, but 
not iiuite so fiist. Takes great i)lcasurc in reading the Bible and Spurgeon's Sermons, 
and is a good Scripturian for one of her age. She has been a faithful member of 
Bi'tlul Church ever since its organization, which is now upwards of fifty years. Her 
health is very good, and she retains her mind remarkably well for a person of hor 
extreme age. Respectfully, [Signed] J. W. BANTA.

2248. PETER CORNELIUS" BONTE was born in Dearborn County, Indiana. 

The traditions in Mr. Bonte's family are to the effect that an ancestor, Uemarest 
De La Bonte, an eminent Huguenot, was executed in Paris, December, 1550, as a 
heretic, his estates confiscated and his family driven out of France. Some of them settled 
i-n Holland, where they lived until the departure of Hendrick Hudson, with whom they 
sailed for the New World in 1609. This story is quoted as a curious illustration of 
the little value to be placed upon tradition, as we know positively that the first of the 
family to reach New Amsterdam arrived half a century later than the date assigned, 
and we have no information of the family during their residence in Holland except 
as to the birth of the children. 

"At the age of seventeen years Peter C. Bonte entered the cordage works of his father 
as an apprentice, and learned all the practical details of the business. Upon the death 
of his father, which occurred when the son was only twenty-two years of age, he took 
charge of the business in connection with his uncle, John Bonte, and conducted it with 
the greatest success. It is said to have been the largest establishment of the kind in 
the West, employing more men arid material than any similar works. After some 
years Mr. Peter C. Bonte withdrew fr:m business and devoted his time and energies to 
the improvement of his own property, and to the interests of the city of which he may 
be considered one of the pior^ecrs. He was twice elected to the City Council from a 
district in which his own p.irtv hnd always been in a minority, and his public duties 
were discharged with assiduity and zeal, and characterized by unswerving fidelity to the 
public good. He has always been active in the work of reform, and has been a constant 
friend of the common schouJs of the city and State. He was for several years Captain 
of the 'Jefferson Greys,' a private military company composed of the most substantial 
and patriotic citizens of Cincinnati. This company volunteered for service during the 
Mexican War, but their offer was not accepted inasmuch as the Ohio quota had already 
been filled." May 3, 1843, he married Imogene Augusta Blanchard, a native of Cin- 
cinnati, who was bom March 28, 1825. They reside at 16 David Street, Cincinnati.

killing him instantly. His widow dying shortly after, his father took Abraham's two 
children and brought them up as members of his own family.

who were married at Schraalcnburgh, N. J., December i, 1768. He is referred to in 
the following extract from the Shelby Couraiit, Shelbyville, Ky., May 22, 1873: 

But then, if the Dutch Company had its heroes and heroines, it also had its men 
of talent as well as legal ability. Among these, perhaps. Judge David Demaree ex- 
celled. He was born at Hackensack, N. J., October 15, 1769, and participated in Gen. 
Harmer's campaign in 1793. He was appointed by the Governor, in 1801, one of the 
six magistrates of Shelby County, and was elected Presiding Judge in December, 1804, 
which position he held for several years. Having married a daughter of Jacob Bruner, 
one of the signers of the original Constitution of Kentucky, his acquaintance with the 
leading inen of the day was quite extensive. That he was regarded as a man of more 
than ordinary ability is evinced by the fact that at his death, which took place in 1814, 
many officials and members of the bar of the State honored his memory with their 
presence at his funeral, riding on horseback many miles for no other purpose. 

Jacob Banta was captain of a militia company in Kentucky, and moved to Johnson 
County, Indiana, in 1832, where he made a farm among the woods. He died in his 
twenty-fourth year, of malignant fever.

urer of the Masonic Order in this place, having joined the fraternity at Goshen in 1844. 
He was an earnest worker in the temperance cause, for which he dehvered several able 
lectures — but most of all, he was a devoted Christian, beginning his religious life in 
1848 he retained his integrity to the end. As said above, durmg the last ten months 
he suffered greatly, but during all that time he bore his pain with the fortitude of a 
child of God, while the loving heart and kind hands of a companion and children did 
all thait mortals could do to alleviate his sufferings until the worn out body let go and 
the spirit was set free to be borne by angels to its final resting place in Paradise. 

A large number of the F. & A. M. fraternity assisting in the funeral rites of the 
Order with hundreds of others present, attested the esteem in which he was held by one 
and all. Truly a good man has gone to his final rest. 

Pastors of the M. E. and U. H. churches assisted in the funeral ceremonies, which 
were held on Sunday afternoon.

thus writes concerning it: "It is a large mill-stone which was used by my great grand- 
father, Peterius. It was doubtless placed there by him when our home was first settled. 
That which supplied my great grandfather's table with bread has, in the fourth genera- 
tion, become only an ornament, as I always plant in the centre of it a bunch of flowers. 
This summer a clump of daisies has made it quite festive. How 1 do love everything 
that has come down to us from those days when our forefathers contended against all 
the hardships of the early times 1 The grand old clock which has been ticking away the 
moments in our family for more than a hundred years has the place of honor in our hall 
to-day, and is as faithful now as a century ago in its warnings that 'Time and tide 
w.iit for no man.'" 

Mr. Bonta has been for nearly twenty years President of the First National Bank of 
Harrodsburg. He has been for forty years a devoted member of the Methodist Church, 
and has held the positions of Steward and Trustee for nearly all this period.

He married Eliza Hampton, Feb. 22, 1840. She was born in Frankfort, Ky., May 10, 
1811, and died July 3, 1892. A Frankfort paper made this reference to her: "Early in 
life she joined the Methodist Church, and has always lived a consistent Christian life. In 
her case it can be truthfully said another sainted soul has been called to rest, for as wife, 
mother, neighbor and friend, she had no superior. The greater portion of her life has 
been spent in practicing the 'Golden Rule,' and she never tired in doing for those 
around her. She possessed all the traits that make a perfect Christian lady, and seemed 
to live only to comfort her husband, children, grandchildren and neighbors. She died 
as she had lived, in the hope of a blessed immortality beyond the grave. The writer 
of this has for more than a quarter of a century lived in, and been permitted to enjoy 
her love and the sunlight of her bright face and character."

3686. JOHN HARMON C.» BONTE was born in Circleville, Ohio, but grew up 
and was educated mainly in Cincinnati. He was prepared for college in the classical 
academy of Dr. Colton. He studied 9ne year in .St. John College, Cincinnati — an 
institution that soon perished, — but he was not strong enough in health to continue in 
any class elsewhere. Under private instructors, however, he pursued successfully the 
study of courses unusually broad for that day. He studied law with Judge Bellamy 
Story, of Cincinnati, passing one year in an Eastern law college, and was admitted in the 
.Supreme Court of Ohio as "Attorney and Counsellor-at-Law and Solicitor in Chancery," 
before he was twenty-one years of age. He practiced law in Cincinnati three years, 
reaping large pecuniary returns, continuing at the same time the study of history, phi- 
losophy, and the Hebrew language and literature. He then passed three years at 
Kenyon College in the study of Divinity and other subjects, and received the degree of 



336 Ninth Generation; John'' Piter<^ John'-' John^ Johannes'^ Seba'^ Epke.'^ 

A. M. in 1857, and subsequently the degree of Doctor in Divinity. He was admitted 
to the Diaconate in the Episcopal Church in July, 1856, and to the Priesthood in July, 
1857. He was subsequently elected one of the Trustees of Kenyon College. During 
the Civil War he served for nine months as Chaplain of the 43d Ohio Regiment, under 
General Pope. 

Thereafter, Dr. Bontc continued in the active duties of the ministry, and in June, 
1870, he became Rector of the Episcopal Church in Sacramento, Cal., where he re- 
mained until his voice failed him ; during this period he officiated for four years as 
Chaplain of the State Senate. 

August 1, 1881, he became Secretary of the University of California, at Berkeley, 
Alameda County, and shortly after was elected Professor of Legal Ethics in its Law De- 
partment, positions still filled by him. 

Dr. Bontc is widely known on the Pacific Coast as a writer on religious, literary 
and scientific subjects.

EXPLANATION. 



FORMERLY it was quite unusual to give to a child more than one baptismal name, 
and as the variety of names in most families was quite limited it was common, 
to distinguish between two persons of similar name, to affix the father's cognomen to 
that of the child — For instance: the son of Jacob Hanta who was christened simply as 
John, would frequently be described as John Jacob, to distinguish him from John, the 
son of Henry, who would be designated as John Henry. Similarly, Mary, the 
daughter of Aaron, would be referred to as Mary Aaron. 

As so many persons of similar names are mentioned in this volume, it has been 
deemed expedient in preparing the Index to Banta surnames to add the father's name 
also, where only a single name would otherwise appear, and in general, a comma has 
been inserted to indicate that the father's name has been so affixed. Thus, John, the 
son of Henry, has been indexed as John, Henry; and Mary, the daughter of Aaron, as 
Mary, Aaron. 

In the Records of the Hackensack Reformed Dutch Church, which were prepared 
by the present writer for publicition as the first volume of Collections of The Holland 
Society of New York, he called attention to the great variety of spelling of proper 
names current among the early settlers in this country, and gave a page or two of illus- 
trations of such variations. One of the names which appears in the Hackensack 
Records as Cammega, Kamga, Kammegaer, Kammiga, efc, will be found in this 
volume as Commingore, Comingo, etc., and this example will ser\'e to illustrate the 
difficulty of attempting to decide as to correct spelling of any name. 

In indexing surnames other than Banta, the rule has usually been followed in this 
book of including families of well-known common origin under one heading instead of 
under the various spellings adopted by different persons. Thus, the Demarees are 
indexed among the Demarests, the Bogarts with the Bogerts, the Van Osdolls with the 
Van Arsdales, etc. 

The names of persons included in this volume who were married and had issue 
are usually mentioned on two different pages ; the first, where they appear in the ac- 
count of their parents' family, and the second time as the head of a new family. The 
paging in tins index rctcrs to ilie latter notice, the lormcr can readily be found by refer- 
ence to the numbers affixed to the names, which are consecutive. For example: Aaron, 
son of George Banta, will be found on page 145, numbered 1313. By turning back- 
ward this number will be found on page 80, where George Banta's family is recorded. 
k A * affixed to a number of a pa^e indicates that two or more similar names will be 
found on that page. 

The names to which a double star "is affixed will be found on the chart show- 
ing the compiler's ancestry inserted in the I'reface.
